HANNIBAL, Mo. -- Traffic along U.S. 61 south of Warren Barrett Drive in Hannibal will be interrupted on Sunday as fiber optic cable is installed.

If weather permits, Ralls County Electric and Universal Cable Services crews will temporarily stop traffic on U.S. 61 for 10- to 15-minute intervals starting at 10 a.m. The work should be completed by 11:30 a.m.

The work has been scheduled on Sunday to avoid peak traffic volumes. Brief traffic delays are necessary to install the cable across the roadway. To avoid delays, motorists are urged to use alternate routes.

Message boards will be set up advising motorists of the road closure. Crews will have traffic reduced to one lane while work occurs.
