Nightly lane closures to begin Thursday on Interstate 29 in Buchanan County

Short-term ramp closures planned

St. Joseph, Mo. – Crews are preparing for nightly lane closures to begin on Intertate 29 this week. The Missouri Department of Transportation contracted with Herzog Contracting Corp. to resurface I-29 from just south of Route O to the Platte County line. Patching is now complete and crews will begin paving Thursday night, Sept. 17.. Operations will be conducted at night to lessen the impact to motorists.

Crews are scheduled to work six nights a week from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. the following morning. Currently, no work is planned for Saturday night into Sunday morning. Short-term ramp closures may occur as crews progress through the project limits.

Paving will be conducted under single-lane closures. One lane in each direction is expected to remain open throughout the project with a 12-foot width restriction. The contractor plans to have all paving work completed by Thursday, Sept. 24.

All work is weather-permitting and schedules, including the completion date, are subject to change.

Motorist are urged to stay alert and pay attention to all roadway signing and barricades and to eliminate distractions. Crews will be working close to traffic. Please remember that all work zones are NO PHONE zones. Buckle up. Phone down. Arrive Alive.
