HANNIBAL - Weather permitting, Wednesday and Thursday, July 6 and 7, MoDOT crews will be cinder sealing Route 151 from just east of Colony south to US 36 at Clarence. The road will be closed from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day, however some areas of the roadway will be open to local traffic only.Signs will be in place to advise motorists fresh oil and cinders may be present at various locations along the roadway. Motorists should must alternate routes during this time. Construction equipment and trucks hauling material will be entering and exiting the work zone. Please use extra caution if you must travel through the work zone area. All lanes will be open to traffic at the end of each workday.
Sealing the existing road surface protects it from weathering and water damage, and lengthens the life of the road depending on the previous condition and the amount of traffic the road receives.
All roadwork is posted on the traveler information map. The traveling and commuting public is encouraged to check the online map at www.modot.org daily for new work zones. Drivers are also invited to rate MoDOT work zones online at modot.org. MoDOT also offers e-update messages sent directly to your email when roadwork is scheduled. Sign up online or call MoDOT's customer service center at 1-888-275-6636.
