Repair Work For Flood-Damaged Holt & Atchison County Routes Beginning Monday

A project to resurface several Atchison and Holt county flood-damaged roadways is expected to begin next week.

Crews from Herzog Contracting Corp., working with the Missouri Department of Transportation, plan to begin grading operations on Monday, April 12.

Work will begin from Route 111 Spur (Holt County) to Route E (Atchison County).

In early May, crews will tackle Holt County Route W and Atchison County Route Z.

In mid-June, crews will move to Atchison County Routes E and U.

In early July, crews will wrap up with Atchison County Routes D and V.

Paving is scheduled to begin in late May.

Paving operations are expected to progress from Holt/Atchison County Route 111 north in the same order as grading.

During the grading and paving operations, the roadway will be reduced to one lane with flaggers and a pilot car directing motorists through the work zone.

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

Crews plan to have all routes resurfaced by late September.

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