Update: Atchison County U.S. Route 136 resurfacing project

ST. JOSEPH, Mo. – Beginning Wednesday, Oct. 20, crews from Phillips Hardy, Inc., contracted by the Missouri Department of Transportation, will move traffic control on Atchison County U.S. Route 136 to begin work on the last segment of flood remediation work.

Crews will begin work at the Missouri River and work their way east toward Rock Port. U.S. Route 136 will be narrowed to one lane. During construction, access to Atchison County Route D and D Avenue will be closed for two weeks.

Traffic will continue to be directed through the work zone by temporary traffic signals. A 12-foot width restriction and 14-foot height restriction will be in place throughout the project. All work is expected to be complete by December 2023.

MoDOT asks drivers to work with us by always buckling up, keeping your phone down, slowing down and moving over in work zones. Know before you go and check what work zones you might encounter at traveler.modot.org.
