A one-week postponement has been announced for the start of a road improvement project on Highway 5 near Salisbury. MoDOT reports the delay is due to predictions of inclement weather, with April 8 now set as the new starting date. The project also includes resurfacing work on Highway 41 near De Witt, starting on April 17, and Highway 5 near Marceline, beginning April 19. Capital Paving and Construction expects to complete the construction by the end of May.

Beginning Monday, April 8, crews will narrow Highway 5 to one lane, with flaggers directing motorists through the work zone. A 10-foot width restriction will be in place. Highway 5 will be closed for two weeks beginning May 1 for concrete repairs under the BNSF Railroad bridge at Marceline. Additionally, there will be a two-week closure starting April 17 under the Norfolk Southern Railroad bridge west of Salisbury.

Traffic will be directed on Highway 24, Routes KK, and WW around the closure.
