HANNIBAL - The resurfacing and shoulder improvement project on Route U in Lincoln County, which was slated to go out for bids in July 2014, will be put on hold until next year. "We are experiencing some challenges acquiring the necessary right of way for the project, so we have to delay construction until next year," explained Chris Knapp, MoDOT Transportation Project. The project, which includes resurfacing Route U and adding shoulders from Route J to the US 61 and Route U interchange just south of Moscow Mills, is tentatively scheduled for construction in 2015.In March 2013, MoDOT representatives presented the proposed project at a public meeting to approximately 35 residents and property owners who will be affected by the project.The project is estimated to cost around $1.8 million.
