ST. JOSEPH, Mo. – Weather has delayed two scrub seal projects scheduled to begin next week led by contractors from Vance Brothers, Inc., working with the Missouri Department of Transportation. Crews now plan to begin on Route T in Andrew County on Wednesday, May 20. They plan to work during daylight hours daily through Friday, May 22. They will then seal Route O in Buchanan County on Saturday, May 23. The work on Route O should only take one day to complete.

A scrub seal is a preventative maintenance treatment which rejuvenates the road surface and helps extend the life of the roadway by filling and sealing cracks in the existing asphalt with an emulsified asphalt/aggregate seal. MoDOT does its best to be good stewards of the monies provided by taxpayers. One of the ways is to employ many preventative maintenance methods, such as these.

These are part of a larger project to seal roads across 13 counties in Northwest Missouri. Other planned routes include:

  • May 26 – 27: Route FF in Buchanan County (Route H to U.S. Route 169)
  • May 28 – 29: Route 31 in Buchanan County (U.S. Route 169 to U.S. Route 36)
