Highway 48 in northwest Missouri is scheduled for a sealing project beginning today (Monday). Vance Brothers Contractors, working with the Missouri Department of Transportation, will seal Highway 48 from U.S. Highway 71 (Andrew County) to U.S. Highway 169 (King City – Gentry County).
Due to the work on the bridge at Whitesville, seal coating of Highway 48 will be slit into two parts. Contractors begin at the bridge at Whitesville and move eastward towards King City. Once that portion is completed, they will begin at the bridge at Whitesville and move westward towards U.S. 71.
Work on these two sections is expected to take three to four days to complete, weather permitting. During the project, motorists will navigate through the single lane work zone by following a pilot car. Any motorists approaching from an adjoining road should wait for the pilot car to pass and then join the queue of cars.
Following the Highway 48 road project, the contractor will move to U.S. 169 for a seal coat project between Highway 31 (DeKalb County) and Interstate 29 (Buchanan County). Crews could begin on U.S. 169 as early as this Thursday (September 1st). All schedules are weather permitting and subject to change.
