BETHANY, Mo. – The new, smoother surface planned for a portion of Interstate 35 in Harrison and Daviess counties has been pushed back two weeks. The Missouri Department of Transportation contracted with Emery Sapp & Sons, Inc. to resurface I-35 between U.S. Route 136 in Bethany and Route C near Pattonsburg (Exit 92 to Exit 78).

The contractor plans to first complete some partial and full-depth patching beginning Monday, May 18. The contractor could have multiple crews and work zones set up within the project limits, both directions of I-35, between May 6 and Sept. 23. Crews could be working seven days a week and may work both daytime and nighttime hours.

One lane in each direction is expected to remain open throughout the project. Due to the nature of some of the work, some lane closures may remain up around-the-clock. A 16-foot width restriction will be in place for the duration of the project.

All work is weather-permitting and schedules are subject to change. Motorists are urged to stay alert and pay attention to all roadway signing and barricades and to eliminate distractions. Crews will be working close to traffic. Please remember that all work zones are NO PHONE zones. Buckle up. Phone down. Arrive Alive.
