HANNIBAL – Weather permitting, the week of September 26, contractor crews will begin work on another sidewalk improvement project in Randolph County located on Route Z from east of Rose Drive to just west of U.S. Route 63 in Cairo.
Sidewalks will remain closed at the location where the contractor is actively working, and traffic will be reduced to one lane during working hours. This work is being completed as part of MoDOT’s initiative for compliance with the current standards of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
Additional sidewalk improvement projects, located on Route EE, from Bus. 63 to Gratz-Brown Street in Moberly and on Route C, from just north of Hayden Street to Clay Street in Huntsville, are currently ongoing.
We ask that motorists please be attentive in work zones for their safety and the safety of highway workers. Signs and message boards will be in place to alert motorists, as schedule changes occur.
The contracts for these projects were awarded earlier this year to S&A Equipment & Builders, LLC of Fulton, Missouri in the amount of $685,846 (Routes C and Z) and $746,312 (Route EE).
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. Know before you go and stay informed of traffic impacts on your route by checking the MoDOT Traveler Information Map. You can also subscribe to counties, various routes or even projects online at Customer Service Signon (mo.gov). Be sure you and all your passengers are buckled up, and please put the phone down while driving.
