New Date Set For Andrew County Pavement Blow Up Reopening

A section of Andrew County U.S. Route 59 from Route CC to U.S. Route 71 will now remain closed through the morning of Friday, June 12.

Crews with the Missouri Department of Transportation began making repairs to the roadway Monday, June 8, after hot temperatures caused a pavement blow up.

Due to predicted inclement weather, crews have delayed the concrete replacement and expect to reopen the roadway the morning of June 12.

The roadway will remain closed around-the-clock for the safety of travelers.

Motorists will need to use an alternate route during the closure.
