Major road resurfacing projects scheduled in Audrain and Montgomery Counties

Date:

Hannibal, Missouri – As part of Governor Parson’s Rural Road program, a significant resurfacing effort is set to begin on Route BB in Audrain and Montgomery counties, promising enhanced road conditions for the region. With a scheduled start date of March 29, weather permitting, this project is among several others aimed at improving Missouri’s rural road infrastructure.

The $4.7 million contract awarded to Magruder Paving, LLC, targets various segments in need of attention, enhancing the connectivity and safety of the state’s thoroughfares. The contract includes the following projects, with one already completed and others in various stages of progress:

  • Completed in Pike County, Route Y: From Business Route 61 in Bowling Green to the terminus of state maintenance.
  • Underway in Montgomery County, Route A: Stretching from Missouri Route 19 to Missouri Route 161.
  • Scheduled for mid-April in Audrain/Montgomery County, Route AA: Extending from Route BB to Missouri Route 19 in Wellsville.

These efforts are a key component of Gov. Parson’s Rural Road program, which received a substantial boost with the allocation of an additional $100 million in general revenue for the Fiscal Year 2024 budget. This funding aims to refurbish 1,567 lane miles of rural roads identified by the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) as being in poor condition through the application of hot mix asphalt treatments.

To facilitate these upgrades, traffic on the affected routes will be narrowed to a single lane where construction is active, with a 9-foot width restriction in place. To ensure the safety and smooth passage of vehicles, flaggers and a pilot car will assist in traffic control, guiding drivers through the work zones during daylight hours. MoDOT informs the public that all work is weather-dependent and schedules are subject to change.

MoDOT urges drivers to exercise caution and remain vigilant when passing through these areas, highlighting the importance of minimizing distractions, such as cell phone use, to protect both the workers on site and the traveling public. For further details on ongoing projects and to receive updates, the public is encouraged to visit MoDOT’s official website and subscribe to e-updates, ensuring they stay informed about the roadwork that impacts their daily commutes.
