Jamesport Building Collapse Delays Scrub Seal Work

Crews working on the series of scrub seal projects in Daviess and Livingston counties this week had a slight change in plans due to the collapse of the Jamesport post office.

Vance Brothers, Inc., working with the Missouri Department of Transportation, planned to finish the scrub seal on Route 190 between the Grundy County line and Route F Monday, but were unable to complete the portion between Route 6 and Route F due to the collapse.

They began the scrub seal on Daviess County Route V between Route 190 and Route 6 Tuesday and plan to be complete today (Wednesday).

They then have four days scheduled to complete Route 190 between Route V and U.S. Route 65 in Livingston County.

They will return to complete Route 190 between Route 6 and Route F as soon as possible after the roadway has been cleared for them to do the scrub seal work.

During scrub seal operations, the roadway is reduced to one lane with flaggers and a pilot car directing motorist through the work zone.

Drivers will experience delays, both directions, as they must wait for a pilot car.

Drivers entering from a side road onto the route being sealed must also wait for a pilot car.

These are part of a larger project to seal roads across 13 counties in Northwest Missouri.

All work is weather-permitting, and schedules are subject to change.
