ST LOUIS - The Missouri Department of Transportation will move forward with pavement repair work on Clarkson Road starting tomorrow, which was originally rescheduled for April 8 due to weather.The pavement repair work will begin Wednesday, April 3, weather permitting, at various locations on Clarkson between Clayton Road and Lea Oak Drive. Crews will focus on this section with a one-lane closure on weekdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Motorists can expect delays, so allow plenty of time for your commute.
"We have been closely monitoring the weather forecast this week expecting rain and winter-like temperatures, but now it looks good for us to mobilize our maintenance operations to do the pavement work," said Michelle Voegele, MoDOT Area Engineer for Southwest Counties. "Moving forward with this work will allow us to have better results with our repairs since the pavement has dried out with warmer temperatures."
MoDOT's maintenance crews have been frequently sweeping this section of Clarkson Road and patching potholes. As spring reaches more consistent warm temperatures, MoDOT has a resurfacing project funded for Clarkson Road from Clayton Road to Lea Oak that will begin in late April to permanently repair this important route. ###
