KEYTESVILLE, Mo. – Work on a resurfacing and shoulder improvement project on U.S. Route 24 will move into its next phase this week. The Missouri Department of Transportation has contracted with Capital Paving and Construction to complete the resurfacing and shoulder improvements on U.S. Route 24 from approximately 2 miles west of Route 41 near DeWitt to Route 5 in Keytesville.

The contractor will complete all the mainline resurfacing this week, then will begin work on the shoulders. Single-lane closures may be necessary during this next phase of work, just as they were in the mainline resurfacing. A pilot car and flaggers will direct motorists around the work zone. A 12-foot width restriction will be in place for the duration of the project.

During daylight hours, Monday through Friday, crews will be on-site and the work zone will be active. Some work may occur on Saturdays, if necessary, to complete the project on schedule. All work should be complete by the end July 2020.

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.
