OSAGE BEACH, MO – Contractors working for the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) are scheduled to begin installing a new driving surface along Route 54 through Osage Beach, starting early next week.

The work includes resurfacing from the Grand Glaize Bridge to East of Osage Parkway. MoDOT says that both lanes in the westbound and eastbound directions will be milled and resurfaced.

The project also includes the resurfacing of the entrance and exit ramps in this section of Route 54, and a small portion of Passover Road from Osage Beach Parkway to the end of state maintenance.

For the safety of motorists and workers on the road, this process will require overnight, single-lane closures from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. beginning the evening of Monday, June 20. Work could also take place on Friday and Saturday nights if required to keep the project on schedule.

Due to safety concerns, the ramps will be closed while being paved. Message boards along the roadway will be in place in advance to notify travelers of those closures.

This work is expected to be complete by the end of August.

MoDOT says they appreciate the patience of motorists while this work takes place. Drivers are encouraged to slow down and obey all signs through work zones.

This work is weather permitting and could be delayed.
