JOPLIN, Mo. – About 4 p.m. Saturday afternoon, December 10, 2022, MoDOT was alerted to a hole that had formed in one lane of I-44 westbound on the overpass of South Main Street.
It was determined to fix the hole so traffic was diverted as a lane was closed about 5:45 p.m.
It is unknown how long the repair will take. But in routine repairs as such it can be into the overnight hours.
Avoid I-44 westbound from South Rangeline (exit 9) to South Main (exit 6).
