Travelers in Randolph County will begin seeing a lot of activity as crews prepare to begin work next week, July 22, on a new overlay project on Route F.
Earlier this year, the Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission awarded the contract to Capital Paving of Columbia, Missouri. The overlay project will extend from Missouri Route 3 to Route C near Darksville, for a total of 7 miles. The cost of the project is $511,603 and the contractor will have 30 days to complete the project with a contract completion date of November 1, 2019 .
“Crews will be resurfacing with a one-inch overlay,” said MoDOT Area Engineer Brian Untiedt. “We appreciate everyone’s attention when traveling though work zones and putting their phones down to eliminate distractions.” Traffic will be reduced to one lane through the work zones while the work is completed.
When traveling through work zones this summer, traffic flow may be merged to one lane. Take turns and merge like a zipper for faster and smoother traffic flow. For additional information on the zipper merge method, watch the video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TLAISm1XuHQ.
