(KMOV) – A project designed to prevent the westbound deck of Highway 40 downtown from falling on to the eastbound deck during a possible earthquake is causing traffic congestion form drivers who want to know when the work will be done.

From 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Saturday, detour signs will reroute drivers in the eastbound lanes of Highway 40 near 11th Street to prepare for a slow down.

The Missouri Department of Transportation says this has been an 11-year project, and it’s currently in its last phase. Engineers say drivers will have to deal with construction until spring of 2012.
