Rural Route Resurfacing Project Beginning in DeKalb County

A project focused on resurfacing low-volume rural routes in several counties across Northwest Missouri will begin today.

Herzog Contracting Corp., working with the Missouri Department of Transportation, will begin today in DeKalb County milling on Route D.

Flaggers will guide motorists through the work zone during milling.

Once milling is complete, crews will begin resurfacing at the intersection of Route Z and work toward Missouri Route Six, closing the roadway daily from dawn to dusk in segments approximately two miles in length Monday, April 1 through Wednesday, April 10.

Motorists will need to seek an alternate route during the intermittent closures.

These resurfacing projects are part of Missouri Governor Mike Parson’s Rural Road program.

With the Governor’s signing of the Fiscal Year 2024 budget, an additional 100 million dollars in general revenue is available for Missouri’s low-volume rural roads.

Using asset management data, the Missouri Department of Transportation has identified 1,567 lane miles of low-volume roads ranked in poor condition.

These locations will receive resurfacing treatments of hot mix asphalt to improve the road conditions.

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