Southwest District – Drivers can expect one-lane traffic and occasional traffic delays when a project to resurface four state routes in Henry, Johnson & Bates counties starts the week of May 11, the Missouri Department of Transportation said.

Drivers can expect pilot cars and flaggers directing them through the work zones. Drivers on side roads should wait for pilot cars before entering areas where resurfacing is being done.

Crews and equipment will be working close to traffic and drivers are urged to use caution while traveling through the work zones.

All routes will receive a new asphalt driving surface and new pavement striping.

Here’s a look at the projects:

  • Henry County Route AA – from Missouri Route 7 east of Clinton traveling south approximately two miles to Henry County Southeast 200 Road
  • Bates/Henry County Route H – from Loop 49 (Orange Street) in Butler traveling east approximately 18 miles to Henry County Route K near Montrose
  • Henry County Route K – from Missouri Route 7 in Urich traveling south approximately 17 miles to Missouri Route 52 in Montrose. The Route K bridge over South Grand River also will receive new guardrail at both ends of the bridge.
  • Henry/Johnson County Route B – from Missouri Route 2 in Johnson County south of Medford traveling south approximately 11 miles to Missouri Route 7 in Urich.

Crews will work Monday through Friday with some work on Saturdays possible.

Drivers are urged to use caution as they may experience a rough ride in areas until the resurfacing project is complete.

Weather and/or scheduling delays will alter the work schedule.
