Surface Work on Eastbound Interstate 70 to Begin in Montgomery and Warren Counties

HANNIBAL - Beginning the week of April 21, MoDOT and its contractor will begin setting signs for pavement work to start the following week. An ultrathin bonded asphalt wearing surface (UBAWS) will be applied to a little over 11 miles of eastbound Interstate 70 from just west of the Route E and Y junction in Montgomery County to just west of MO 47 at Warrenton.

Crews will begin milling and paving operations in the eastbound travel lanes, with the majority of the work to be conducted at night Sunday through Friday from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. throughout the month of May. Traffic will be reduced to one lane through the work zone, however brief one to two hour closures at the Jonesburg and Pendleton eastbound exit/entrance ramps will be necessary while paving in these locations; message boards will be in place in advance of the exit advising motorists of the closure. During construction, equipment and material haul trucks will be entering and exiting the work zone; minor delays should be expected. Motorists may encounter uneven pavement at times. The roadway will be opened to two lanes at the end of each workday.

MoDOT reminds motorists to drive with caution, obey posted speed limits and other signs in the work area, and be aware traffic fines for moving violations are at least double in work zones. Drivers should stay alert, allow ample space between vehicles and wear seat belts. The resurfacing is expected to be completed in approximately one month, weather permitting. Magruder Paving, LLC of Troy, MO was the successful bidder with a bid of $1,096,240.65.

All roadwork is posted on the traveler information map. Those traveling and commuting public are encouraged to check the online map at www.modot.org daily for new work zones.
