Striping Wraps Up in SE Missouri Cities, Towns
Watch for Slow-Moving MoDOT Trucks

SIKESTON -The Missouri Department of Transportation's (MoDOT) work to re-stripe various state routes is expected to wrap up Saturday, June 28 and Sunday, June 29 in Poplar Bluff and Kennett, weather permitting.

To help reduce the impact to traffic, striping in the cities will take place overnight. Striping work will begin around 7 p.m., Saturday, June 28 and conclude at approximately 2 a.m. Sunday, June 29, weather permitting. As work is underway, drivers should be prepared to slow down significantly when coming up behind a slow-moving striping caravan.

The striping trucks move between 8 mph and 12 mph when work is underway. A driver traveling at highway speed can approach a slow-moving striping caravan much quicker than he or she expects because of significant differences in speed.

Drivers are asked to watch for yellow MoDOT trucks with flashing strobe lights and boards with flashing arrows and messages. MoDOT encourages drivers to use caution in and around the striping equipment and crew workers.
