Roadway improvements expected to impact area traffic beginning Monday
An effort to increase safety and make driving surface improvements on various roadways in Osage, Gasconade and Phelps County will begin Monday.
Starting Monday, a contractor working for the Missouri Department of Transportation will begin pavement and shoulder improvement work on Route CC from Route 50, south of Linn, to the end of state maintenance.
As part of this project, the contractor will also be conducting pavement and shoulder improvement work on Route B from Route 28 near Bland to Route 68 in St. James. This work is expected to begin later this spring.
This work will require daily lane closures with flaggers and pilot vehicles guiding motorists through the work zones. Signs will be in place to alert motorists of the lane closures. Drivers will need to slow down and obey all signs in work zones.
The Missouri Department of Transportation expects the project to be complete by November 2021.
