KSNF/KODE — Utility work is expected to affect overnight traffic flow on I-49 in Carthage next week.

Said work is scheduled for Thursday, January 19 from 1 to 3 am, depending on good weather conditions.

MoDOT says both northbound and southbound lanes from the HH Freeway to the I-44 and 49 interchanges will be reduced, so expect delays.

Crews will work on a utility line that runs along the interstate.
