SIKESTON - The Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission awarded a contract to overlay various routes throughout Southeast Missouri during its regular meeting today. The $1,232,289 contract was awarded to Pace Construction Company, LLC, St. Louis, Mo.
The project will include overlays on over 20 miles of Southeast Missouri routes. Improvements will be completed on Route 60 near Sikeston in New Madrid County; Routes H and AA near Haywood City and Minor in Scott County, respectively; Route EE near Chaffee in Cape Girardeau County; and Route 80 from Route B to County Road 331 near Whiting in Mississippi County.
Work could begin as early as this spring, with completion anticipated in late fall 2012, weather permitting. As work is underway, motorists should anticipate one-way traffic with flagger-controlled work zones.
Work zones will be marked with signs as improvements are made. Drivers are urged to use extreme caution near the work zones and plan for possible delays. MoDOT will alert drivers prior to any change in traffic.
