Three-County U.S. Route 36 Project Moving Into Paving Phase

A project across three counties and 73 miles of U.S. Route 36 will move into the paving phase next week.

The Missouri Department of Transportation contracted with Emery Sapp & Sons, Inc. to complete the project which includes pavement repair between the Clinton County and Macon County lines and resurfacing between Parson’s Creek west of Meadville and the Macon County line.

The contractor began pavement repair in Sept. 2020, ceased operations for the winter, and resumed work on March 15.

With pavement repair nearing completion, crews will begin on Wednesday, April 14, with resurfacing U.S. Route 36 from Parson’s Creek to the Macon County line.

Single-lane closures around the repair sites could remain up around the clock, in order to allow the pavement to cure.

A 14-foot width restriction will be in place for the duration of the project.

Work zones will be active throughout the project during daylight hours, Monday through Friday.

Some work may occur on Saturdays, if necessary.

Traffic control and message boards will be in place alerting motorists of the work and planned lane closures.

All work is weather permitting and could be rescheduled.
