Repairs to Temporarily Close U.S. Route 61 Northbound at Warren Barrett Drive in Hannibal

March 30, 2021

HANNIBAL – A temporary closure of northbound U.S. Route 61 in Hannibal is scheduled for tonight, March 30, at 11:00 p.m. extending into the early morning hours of March 31 until 4:00 a.m. Crews will remove the temporary steel plates and place asphalt in the driving lane. “Warmer temperatures and better weather conditions allow us to make the temporary repairs needed to accommodate motorists until the project moves to the next phase,” explained Missouri Department of Transportation Area Engineer Brian Untiedt. The road will be closed between Warren Barrett Drive and Market Street.

While there will be no signed detour, traffic will be routed to Warren Barrett Drive to Missouri Route 79 and back onto to U.S. Route 36. Message boards and signage will be placed at various locations to assist motorists.

Motorists will need to use caution while traveling through the area during these times. Remember to obey all work zone signs and personnel, and put down your cell phone to help eliminate distractions.
