Resurfacing to Begin on Frederick
Sidewalk Improvements Nearly Complete

ST. JOSEPH, Mo. – The sidewalk improvement project on Route 6 (Frederick Avenue) spanning from Woodbine Road to Route AC (Riverside Road) is wrapping up and resurfacing from Riverside Road to Interstate 29 is set to begin. The sidewalk project, was partially funded through the Transportation Alternatives Program with the Missouri Department of Transportation providing a 20 percent match. These federal grant funds help pedestrians in St. Joseph enjoy safer walking, visiting restaurants and shopping. The project brought improvements to both sidewalks and intersections in the area to ensure they comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

Beginning Thursday, Oct. 5, the resurfacing portion of project will begin. Mega Industries Corporation of North Kanasas City, working with MoDOT, will begin milling the old roadway surface and laying the first lift (layer) of new asphalt. This will begin in the outside lanes. The inside lane each direction will remain open to traffic. This pattern will be in place around the clock until Tuesday, Oct. 10. At that time, traffic will be moved to the outside lanes while the work is completed on the inside lanes. This will be in place around the clock through Saturday, Oct. 14. During the first part of the project, no left turns from Frederick Avenue onto Leonard Road will be permitted. This will be in effect around the clock Oct. 5 - 14.

Paving the second lift of new asphalt will take place during daylight hours Oct. 14-20. This will require lane closures along the entire length of the project, however the closed lane will reopen at the end of the work day. During this second part of the project, the no left turns from Frederick Avenue onto Leonard Road provision will only be in place during daylight (working) hours.

Motorists are encouraged to use caution during both the sidewalk and resurfacing projects, as crews will be working in close proximity to the traveling public.
