Republic: Hines Street on South Side
of U.S. 60/Route 413 Remains Closed
Into Week of September 27

*DISTRICT 8, SPRINGFIELD - Drivers using Hines Street on the SOUTH side of U.S. 60/Route 413 in Republic will have to find an alternate route into the week of September 27, the Missouri Department of Transportation said.

Hines Street is closed on the south side of the highway as part of the ongoing widening project.

Crews are scheduled to pour concrete for the new Hines Street approach on Monday, September 20. The street entrance to the highway will remain closed for a week to allow the concrete to cure properly. Rain will delay the Hines Street re-opening.

School students are urged to cross the busy highway at signalized intersections to the west, including Elm Street and Main Avenue/Route P.

Elm Street on the SOUTH side of U.S. 60/Route 413 was re-opened to traffic on Wednesday, September 15.

Weeks of September 20 and 27

Most of the work planned will take place AWAY from traffic:

* Sidewalks will be built between Hines and Elm streets on the south side of the highway.

* Sod will be laid on both sides of the highway west of Main Avenue/Route P.

* Grass seed and mulch will be spread on the west end of the project. Dirt will be graded and smoothed in various locations.

Rain will cause delays in the project.

No night work is scheduled for the weeks of September 20 and 27.

Bumps remain at some city street approaches that have been rebuilt until they can be repaved next spring.

Drivers are urged to slow down through the work zone and watch for cars turning slowly into driveways that may be half closed.

Giving Advance Warning

MoDOT and its contractors will continue to work closely with city officials and businesses and others directly affected when planning the street closings.

Emergency service agencies and dispatchers are being notified when streets are closed so that responders can plan alternate routes, he said.


The prime contractor on the $6.1-million widening project along U.S.60/Route 413 in Republic is Journagan Construction of Springfield. Some sewer and water line work is being done by the City of Republic, a partner with MoDOT on the project.

The project involves adding a lane in each direction and rebuilding city street approaches and driveway entrances between Hines Street and West Avenue, with work continuing into the fall. The highway will be resurfaced through Republic's city limits in the spring of 2005 after the weather warms up.
