Pavement improvements are still scheduled to begin this month for a section of U.S. Route 69 in Harrison County, just a bit delayed.
Contractors working with the Missouri Department of Transportation had originally planned to begin work Monday, Oct. 17, but the weather has pushed the start date back. They now plan to close one lane of U.S. Route 69 for pavement improvements beginning Wednesday, Oct. 26.
The road will be narrowed in approximately two miles sections between the Iowa state line and Route M near Eagleville throughout the duration of the project. First, contractor crews will prepare the road surface by doing some patching. That process is expected to take four working days. Once the patching is completed the old road surface will be milled off and resurfacing will begin.
During all phases of the project, motorists can expect delays as a pilot car will be used to guide them through the work zone. Please pay attention to all flaggers and signs. If accessing U.S. Route 69 from a side road, please wait for the pilot car before proceeding onto U.S. Route 69. The contractor plans to complete the project by mid-November. All planned work is weather permitting and schedules are subject to change.
