Pavement Treatment to Be Applied to Route 54 Curves in Callaway County

CALLAWAY COUNTY – An innovative safety pavement treatment designed to provide motorists with more traction in rain or snow will be applied next week to two curves near Summit Drive on U.S. Route 54 in Callaway County.

The curves, locally referred to as the Mel-Ray curves, will receive a safety application called High Friction Surface Treatment. The treatment will close one lane of Route 54 in the area of the curve each day from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. beginning Monday, July 31 through the morning of Friday, August 4. One lane will be open through the work area at all times.

Work is scheduled to begin in the eastbound lanes of Route 54 on Monday and then move to the westbound lanes on Wednesday.

All work is weather permitting and schedules are subject to change.

The High Friction Surface Treatment is part of the larger resurfacing and pavement repair project that has improved more than 25 miles of Route 54 from the Missouri River Bridge at Jefferson City to north of the Business 54 ramp in Fulton. The High Friction Surface Treatment was added to the scope of the Route 54 resurfacing project following a safety audit conducted on Route 54 from Camdenton to Mexico last year.

Median guard cable and “wrong way” signs will also be installed along sections of Route 54 from the Missouri River Bridge in Jefferson City to I-70 in Kingdom City as a result of the road safety audit. The guard cable and signage portion of the work is scheduled for completion by the fall of 2018.
