Construction crews are making progress on the Missouri River Bridge outside Jefferson City, though drivers on Labor Day weekend were hit with major delays. Bridge traffic is confined to one of the two bridges that make up the crossing while the other is being repaired, causing delays as drivers are squeezed into narrow lanes. Missouri Department of Transportation spokesperson Sally Oxenhandler said she understands how frustrating getting stuck in traffic can be, but said the construction on the bridge has to be done.
