Crews will begin replacing culverts on Route A on Monday, January 5. Crews will be working on Route A between Route YY in Krakow and Route 100 in Washington, Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. At this time there are no full closures scheduled, but one lane will be closed when crews are out working. Flaggers will be on hand to direct motorists through the lane closures. Motorists are advised to allow a little extra time to travel through the area.
Why does Route A need to be improved?
Roadway improvements and resurfacing upgrades to Route A are needed to address safety concerns and preserve the life of the pavement.
What improvements are being done?
MoDOT will make safety improvements in two phases on Route A from Union to Washington. The improvements include new culverts, adding two-foot shoulders and a new driving surface. In addition, guardrail will be put up in some locations.
When will the project be complete?
Work began on the segment from Union to Krakow in spring 2014 and was completed in October 2014. Work will begin in 2015 on the stretch from Washington to Krakow. All work is expected to be completed in October 2015.
What is the estimated project cost?
This project was awarded to NB West for approximately $2.4 million.
