Weather Delays Scrub Seal Projects in Northwest Missouri

Weather has further delayed the schedule on scrub seal projects led by contractors from Vance Brothers, Inc., working with the Missouri Department of Transportation.

Crews now plan to complete Route T in Andrew County this week.

They will then seal Route O in Buchanan County on Tuesday, May 26.

The work on Route O should only take one day to complete.

A scrub seal is a preventative maintenance treatment which rejuvenates the road surface and helps extend the life of the roadway by filling and sealing cracks in the existing asphalt with an emulsified asphalt/aggregate seal.

While scrub sealing the route, traffic will be narrowed to one lane with flaggers and a pilot car guiding drivers around the work zone.
