Portions of U.S. Route 71 to be Resurfaced in Nodaway, Andrew Counties

A project to resurface portions of U.S. Route 71 will begin Tuesday, April 2.

Herzog Contracting Corp., working with the Missouri Department of Transportation, will resurface portions of the north and southbound lanes of Route 71 from the intersection of Business 71 near Maryville to the intersection of Route T near Savannah.

During this time, crews will lower the speed limit in the work zone to 55 miles per hour and narrow the roadway to one lane.

MoDOT expects all work to take place Monday through Saturday during daylight hours.

A 16-foot width restriction will be in place daily.

Crews plan to complete the project by September.

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