A concrete replacement project on U.S. Route 36 and Route 13 in the city limits of Hamilton will cause delays for some motorists next week.
Crews from the Missouri Department of Transportation will close the driving lanes of both east and westbound U.S. Route 36 from 6:30 a.m. Monday, July 11 until 5 p.m. Friday, July 15, narrowing U.S. Route 36 traffic to one lane in each direction for the duration of the project. A 12-foot width restriction will also be in place.
For a few hours during the middle of the day on Tuesday, July 12 and Wednesday, July 13, westbound U.S. Route 36 will close and traffic will be redirected over the on and off ramps at the Route 13 junction in order to complete pavement repairs at the intersection. Traffic on the Route 13 bridge over U.S. Route 36 will also be affected as crews will narrow the bridge to one lane during this time. Flaggers will be in place to guide motorists through these closures which are scheduled from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. daily, July 12 and 13.
Motorists should always slow down, be alert, and follow all construction signs, flaggers, and message boards. All work is weather permitting and schedules are subject to change. MoDOT encourages all motorists to buckle up, eliminate distractions and drive safely through work zones to ensure everyone is able to Arrive Alive.
