On several occasions I have had to use the Jefferson City bridge from Highway 63 to go on to Highway 54. It gets a lot of travelers for sure. Good news to report. The Missouri Department of Transportation announced the ramp from Highway 63 to Highway 54 near the Jefferson City bridge is back open to traffic.

The repairs were supposed to take a bit longer, but obviously this is good news for anyone who has to travel around this area.  Their Facebook post about it is below:


I am sure that the commuters for this area are thrilled.  Nice work MODOT.  They will now take their work to the Route 94 overpass. One lane will stay closed until early September.

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
