Missouri Route M in Scott County will be reduced to one lane with a 10-foot width restriction as contractor crews construct sidewalks and update the existing signals with pedestrian features. This section of roadway is located from Wheeler Street to Crites Street in Scott City, Missouri. A section of Business 61 will also be reduced to one lane from the overpass to the Route M intersection. Weather permitting, work will take place Monday, July 18 through Thursday, Dec. 1.

This project is part of the Missouri Department of Transportation’s initiative to bring roadway facilities into compliance with the current standards of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The work zone will be marked with signs. Motorists are urged to use extreme caution while traveling near the area.
