Seal Coat Project Starting Friday East of St. Joseph

A seal coat project begins this week on U.S. Route 36 east of Saint Joseph.

Crews from Vance Brothers, Inc., working with the Missouri Department of Transportation, plan to seal coat the eastbound lanes only of U.S. Route 36 between Route AC (Riverside Road) in St. Joseph and just east of Route 31 North in DeKalb County.

Work is scheduled for Friday and Saturday, September 24 and 25, and Monday and Tuesday, September 27 and 28, daylight hours only.

During the seal coat operation, the roadway will be reduced to one lane in sections up to five miles in length.

Flaggers will be utilized at crossovers and intersections to assist motorists through the work zone.

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