MACON – More than $3.5 million for road improvements in Randolph County has been awarded to Columbia-based Capital Paving and Construction by the Missouri Department of Transportation.

Projects include:

  • U.S. Route 24 – 1.5 miles of resurfacing, west of Randolph County Route C to .9 mile east of U.S. Route 63 near Moberly. The total length of improvement being 8.647 miles.
  • Route C (Macon/Randolph) – chip seal, from .4 mile south of U.S. Route 36 to Randolph County Route JJ in Huntsville. The total length of improvement being 23.36 miles.
  • Randolph County Route A – chip seal, from Business 63 in Moberly to Randolph County Route B junction near Higbee. The total length of improvement being 9.592 miles.
  • Randolph County Route EE – 4.719 miles of resurfacing,  just east of U.S. 53 to end of state maintenance near Moberly.
  • Randolph County Route B – chip seal, from U.S. 63 near Clark to Missouri Route 3 near Roanoke in Howard County. The total length of improvement being 18.278 miles.

“The resurfacing project on U.S. 24 will involve some mill and fill along with an overlay, while the resurface on Route EE will be a 1-inch overlay,” says MoDOT area engineer Brian Untiedt. “The remaining projects include sealing the pavement and crews applying liquid asphalt that helps seal off any cracks that may be in the road, and then will apply small aggregate rock,” he added.

Traffic will be reduced to one lane through the work zones while the work is completed. The work could begin as early as this spring and should be completed before fall, he says.

“A more specific schedule on these projects will be shared after the contractor provides the plan for completing the work,” Untiedt added.
