The work schedule remains light throughout the KMZU listening area with work continuing in Cooper County on the Route OO Bridge between Route M and Short Drive through September 30. Also, work on new pavement construction for Route double H just north of Veterans Road northeast of Sedalia. Lanes will be closed 24 hours a day as work continues through the end of the year. In Caldwell County, Route D will close Monday for a bridge replacement project. The road will be shut down for six to eight weeks at the Goose Creek bridge about one mile north of Route HH. The transportation department will then close the Route W bridge over East Sheep Creek on May 7. Drivers will need to find alternate routes during those construction projects.

According to the Lafayette County Sheriff’s Department, Barkertown Road between Calvary Hill & Johnson Drive will be closed next couple days for maintenance.

MoDOT announced late last week that the Chariton County bridge over Stanley Lake has reopened. The structure was closed for about a week.
