Grundy County Route Z resurfacing to begin Thursday

Workers resurface a road with asphalt

A resurfacing project on two lettered routes has reached the halfway point.

The Missouri Department of Transportation has contracted with Herzog Contracting Corp. to complete the resurfacing of Daviess/Caldwell County Route J from Route 6 in Altamont to U.S. Route 36 and Grundy County Route Z from Route 6 to U.S. Route 65. Work on Route J finished yesterday.

The contractor plans to begin paving Route Z tomorrow, Thursday, April 9. Route Z will be narrowed to one lane in two-mile segments for the paving. Flaggers and a pilot car will direct motorists through the area. Delays are to be expected. Crews plan to work daylight hours, Monday through Friday.

When Route Z is complete, crews will stripe both routes.

All work is weather-permitting, and schedules are subject to change.
