MODOT to Start Chula Sidewalk Improvement Early

The Missouri Department of Transportation announced this week that a planned sidewalk improvement project in Chula will begin sooner than anticipated. 

Work begins May 9th; the aim is to ensure compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act and is funded in part through the Transportation Alternatives Program.

Sidewalks in Chula, Ludlow, and Wheeling will receive upgrades.

Work on Route K in Chula is expected to be wrapped up by Friday, May 10th.

From there, crews will move on to Route B in Wheeling starting May 13th. 

The project is expected to be complete by late June. 

MODOT encourages motorists to use caution and follow traffic control, flaggers, signs, and barricades during project work. 

Personal vehicles and property must be removed from the project area before work starts.

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