Linn County Route WW to remain closed; motorist drives around barricades, damaging roadway

Road Closed

Route WW will remain closed today, Thursday, April 9, through 3 p.m. for a culvert replacement. Local maintenance crews from the Missouri Department of Transportation replaced the culvert today, April 8, but their barricades blocking the roadway between Route ZZ and the Macon County line were moved, and a motorist drove through the freshly laid pavement.

Do not move or drive around barricades. Roadwork often requires cutting into the pavement, missing sections of pavement, uneven surfaces, or time for the roadway material to cure. Driving through a barricaded area could damage your vehicle or injure the driver and occupants. At the very least it will require an extended closure, such as this one, while crews repair the damage.

During all roadway closures, motorists must use an alternate route.  All work is weather-permitting, and schedules are subject to change.
