An upcoming road project in the Republic area will help improve safety for drivers, however, there will be some temporary changes for traffic. Beginning the week of Monday, October 8, MoDOT will begin modifications to portions of the on and off ramps at I-44 and MM/B just north of the city limits. This goal is to raise the elevation of the ramps to improve visibility for traffic at the intersection. Construction will result in nighttime closings (7:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m.) for the westbound off-ramp. The eastbound off-ramp will be closed 24 hours a day for the duration of the project. The closings are expected to last through mid/late October. In the meantime, you may use James River Freeway/Route 360 to make connections between MM/B and I-44.
