CONSTRUCTION ALERTS With summer, comes construction in Missouri. The GAMES would like to remind competitors and spectators to keep the following in mind when planning travel to the GAMES. MODOT recommends that those headed to Cosmo Park for the Games should use Stadium Blvd. as the best route.
In addition, MODOT reminds travelers coming from the Western side of MIssouri that  I-70 Reduced to One Lane in Each Direction Near Boonville
Show Me State Games travelers on the western side of the state who plan to take Interstate 70 to Columbia should note that I-70 is reduced to one lane in each direction near Boonville. The bridges that carry I-70 over the Lamine River are getting new driving surfaces and other repairs.  In addition, this coming weekend traffic will be switched from the westbound bridge to the eastbound bridge beginning Saturday morning, with the total switch expected by early Tuesday morning. One lane of I-70 in each direction will remain open at all times.
Still, the bridge closures and traffic switch are expected to cause significant travel delays. MoDOT officials are strongly encouraging I-70 motorists to use alternate east-west routes, such as U.S. Routes 50 and 36. More information on the project can be found at 

Columbia has some great dining options.
 Please consider supporting our dining partners while you are in town for the GAMES! A list of our partners can be found here.
