Missouri Department of Transportation crews will be working on two lighting projects Tuesday if weather permits.

Traffic will be reduced to one lane from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on southbound U.S. 61 at the Huck Finn Shopping Center in Hannibal, Mo., while crews do preparation work for the relocation of street lighting on the west side of the highway, just north of the intersection. Work should be completed that day, but crews will be working nearby on Wednesday to prepare for relocation of lights on the west side of the highway just north of Stardust intersection.

Also on Tuesday, crews will be working on interchange lighting repairs on the entrance ramp to U.S. 61 northbound at the U.S. 24/U.S. 61 interchange near Taylor. The work will be on the right shoulder, with narrowed one-lane traffic on the entrance ramp or Canton exit.


In Case You Missed It

Therapy dog knows just what Baldwin students need
Cooper heads down the hallway in Baldwin West for another day of school. He's focused. He's friendly. He's furry. Cooper, a golden doodle, is teacher Erin Armbruster's trained therapy dog, and his pawprints reach beyond just her classroom. "He helps out the students. He's a very good dog," fifth-grader Myles Cain said.
