Next phase of roadway improvement project to impact local Phelps County traffic


As part of an ongoing improvement project taking place on various roadways in Dent and Phelps Counties, work crews plan to start on the next phase next week.

Starting Monday, June 21, a contractor working for the Missouri Department of Transportation  will begin resurfacing Phelps County Route K. 

This work is expected to take several weeks to complete and will require daily intermittent lane closures with flaggers to guide motorists through the work zone.

Once this work is complete, crews will begin resurfacing Dent County Route HH near Salem.

This work is weather permitting and could be delayed.
