Road improvements in Linn County delayed

Road Work Sign

A planned shoulder improvement project in Linn County is now scheduled to begin April 16.

Contractor crews from Capital Paving and Construction, LLC, working with the Missouri Department of Transportation, will improve the shoulders, replace guardrail, and repave the shoulders of the ramps at the Route 5/Route U interchange near Marceline. The shoulder and guardrail portion of the project extends from just east of Brookfield to just east of Bucklin. The contractor plans to begin work on Monday, April 16, and all work should be complete by the end of May. All work is weather permitting and could be rescheduled.

Crews plan to work during daylight hours Monday through Friday, but some Saturday work could also occur. Traffic control will be in place alerting motorists of the work and one lane each direction on U.S. Route 36 will remain open at all times during the project.

MoDOT encourages all travelers to slow down, especially in work zones, as there will be large equipment and workers near the driving lanes. As always, please buckle up, eliminate distractions, pay attention and drive safely so everyone is able to Arrive Alive.
