|MoDOT Southwest District - Five state
routes -in Barton, Bates, Henry and Vernon counties - are scheduled to
be sealed with a mixture of rock and oil beginning the week of July 27,
the Missouri Department of Transportation said.|
Drivers can expect one-lane traffic with flaggers and pilot vehicles directing them through the work zone.
Drivers are urged to use caution and reduce their speed when traveling over recently-sealed sections of highways.
A chip-seal is planned for these roads as an economical way to maintain and preserve the roadway. The treatments keep a road from deteriorating and will extend its life.
