CLOSED. MoDOT will not be plowing this route during winter weather as Route Z west of Route 111 is not safe for motorists at this time. Route Z east of Route 111 will be plowed during winter weather.
Water is still over the edge of Route Z in some places, which narrows the roadway and there is significant damage to the pavement and shoulders. Work on Route Z will be on hold until the spring of 2020 when temperatures allow. Some work may be done by contractors, while some may be done by MoDOT's local maintenance crews. Until the work is completed, the roadway will remain closed.
