Pavement Work Scheduled in Stone County

(MoDOT news release) -- Three state routes in Stone County are scheduled to be sealed with a mixture of rock and oil beginning the week of July 9, the Missouri Department of Transportation said.

The locations: 
•    Route 160 between U.S. Route 65 and Missouri Route 13 (12 miles)
•    Stone County Route JJ from Missouri Route 86 north to the end of state maintenance (6 miles)
•    Stone County Route H from Route 13 west to the end of state maintenance (4.7 miles)
•    Stone County Route H from Route 39 east to the end of state maintenance (4.5 miles)

Weather and/or construction delays could alter the work schedule

Drivers can expect one-lane traffic with flaggers and pilot vehicles directing them through the work zone.  Traffic could be stopped for several minutes. Delays are expected. Drivers at side roads should wait for the pilot vehicle before entering the roadway.

Drivers are urged to use caution and reduce their speed when traveling over recently-sealed sections of highways.

A chip-seal is not an alternative to an asphalt overlay, but is planned for these roads as an economical way to maintain and preserve the roadway. The treatments keep a road from deteriorating and will extend its life. 

Project information:
•    Contractor: Blevins Asphalt Construction Co., Mt. Vernon
•    Total cost: $1.6 million
•    Completion date: September 1, 2018
