Mainline paving for the resurfacing project on a portion of Interstate 35 in Harrison and Daviess counties is scheduled to begin today.
Mo-Dot contracted with Emery Sapp & Sons, Inc. to resurface I-35 between U.S. Route 136 in Bethany and Route C near Pattonsburg (Exit 92 to Exit 78), including work on the on and off ramps.
Starting today (Monday) Crews plan to start milling and paving in the southbound driving lane (right lane), then move to the passing lane (left lane), progressing southward. They will then do the northbound lanes.
One lane in each direction is expected to remain open throughout the project. A 14-foot width restriction will be in place during the paving, which is expected to continue until the end of the end of September. More work will follow the paving, with the entire project scheduled to be complete by mid-October.
Crews could be working seven days a week, if needed, to complete the project on schedule.
All work is weather-permitting and schedules are subject to change.
