HANNIBAL – Weather permitting, Monday, September 13, crews will begin a pavement improvement project covering nearly seven miles on U.S. Route 36 in Shelby and Marion counties, located 1.7 miles west of Route Z near Hunnewell to 0.7 miles west of Bus. Route 36 west junction at Monroe City.
Crews will be actively working on full-depth pavement repairs at various locations within a three-mile stretch at a time. Traffic will be reduced to one lane through the work zone while the work is completed. In addition to signs, message boards and arrow panels, temporary rumble strips will be utilized in alerting travelers to the upcoming work zone.
“There is the possibility for various crossovers to be temporarily closed while repairs are completed in those areas,” said MoDOT Area Engineer Brian Untiedt. “Additionally, motorists can expect the potential for overnight lane closures if needed to allow for the curing of concrete repairs,” he added.
Emery Sapp and Sons, of Columbia, Missouri, was awarded the project in the amount of $253,521. Work is scheduled to be completed by early October.
