MO Dept of Transportation provided this update on how to get to the N Jefferson trailhead while the Missouri River Bridge at Jeff city is being worked on:
The westbound Missouri River Bridge is closed for painting and repairs through the end of August. The eastbound Missouri River Bridge is carrying two lanes of eastbound and two lanes of westbound traffic.
Here’s how to access the North Jefferson Trailhead on the Katy Trail:
· Drivers traveling west on Route 54 will still be able to access the trailhead via Route W.
· Leaving the trailhead, motorists can still use Route W to access Route 54 east.
· Drivers traveling east on Route 54/63 are still able to use the Route W exit to access the Katy Trail.
· However, the westbound Route W ramp is closed, so travelers leaving the North Jefferson Trailhead and wanting to go west on Route 54/63 will need to cross over the Route W overpass to eastbound 54 and take the Route 63 north exit and then head back west on 54.
In addition, the bicycle/pedestrian bridge on the eastbound structure remains open, as does the Carl G. Noren River Access.
More information, including a map showing the closures, can be found at http://www.modot.org/central/MORiverBridgeJC.htm.
