Weather permitting, the week of October 3, contractor crews and the Missouri Department of Transportation will start work on resurfacing the Interstate 70 South Outer Road from Route Y in Jonesburg to 0.15 miles west of West Warrenton Boulevard. The length of improvement is 7.5 miles, with plans for completion by early November.
“Traffic will be reduced to one lane where crews are actively working, and motorists will be directed through the work zone with the use of flaggers and a pilot car. Work will occur during daytime hours beginning at West Warrenton Blvd in Warrenton and progress west,” explained Missouri Department of Transportation Area Engineer Jeff Niemeyer. “This route carries a considerable volume of local traffic. We ask that motorists please be attentive in work zones for their safety and the safety of highway workers,” he added. All work is weather dependent and signs and message boards will be in place to alert motorists, as schedule changes occur. This contract was awarded last fall to Pace Construction Company of St. Louis, Missouri in the amount of $934,777.
With an increased number of highway work zones in Missouri, it is important all drivers pay attention every second while driving, especially through work zones.
