    Get ready for some traffic challenges west of Jefferson City. Work on the damaged Highway – 50 / Big Horn Drive overpass started up today.

    A truck hauling a piece of construction equipment hit the underside of bridge last month, damaging the bridge and leaving only one eastbound lane of ‘50’ open to traffic. The work may close off access on both the highway or on Big Horn for a time. The entire repair project could take as much as a month.
