US 60/65 Interchange Springfield, Missouri
New bridge girders have been installed for the eastbound to northbound and the northbound to westbound flyover ramps. This view is from northbound Route 65 at Route 60.
The new flyover ramps are taking shape at the 60/65 interchange in southeast Springfield.
A new westbound Route 60 driving lane is planned between Route 65 and Glenstone Avenue. In August, crews will haul in rock for the base before concrete is poured for the new driving lane.
Contractor crews must build concrete forms on the girders of the bridges. The forms keep the concrete in place when it is poured for the bridge decks.
Contractor crews have poured concrete for a portion of the roadway going north from the eastbound Route 60-to-northbound Route 65 “flyover” bridge along northbound Route 65. Asphalt for shoulders is scheduled to be laid during mid-August.
The new northbound Route 65-to-westbound Route 60 “flyover” bridge is nearing completion and work is progressing well on the eastbound Route 60-to-northbound Route 65 “flyover” bridge.
Work to rebuild the U.S. 60-U.S. 65 interchange is on schedule. The entire project includes work to rehabilitate, replace or build 10 new bridges.
The lower ramp (northbound U.S. 65-to-westbound U.S. 60) is scheduled to open October 17. The higher ramp (eastbound U.S. 60-to-northbound U.S. 65) is scheduled to open around Christmas.
Girders have been placed for the new northbound U.S. 65 bridge over U.S. 60. The new bridge is located just east of the existing bridge.
Here’s a closer look at the new northbound U.S. 65-to-westbound U.S. 60 “flyover” ramp.
The northbound U.S. 65-to-westbound U.S. 60 “flyover” ramp opened during the early morning hours of Sunday.
Construction is set to begin on a new westbound U.S. 60 bridge over the railroad tracks at the U.S. 60/65 interchange in southeast Springfield.
