There are a few projects getting underway this week in Saline and Ray Counties, including a project put off in Lafayette County. Area Engineer Mike McGrath has more.


The list of new projects getting underway this week is short; however in Pettis County this morning starting at 8:30, Ohio Avenue from Pettis to Main Street will be closed for Emergency Track repair at the railroad crossing. Both lanes will remain closed until work is complete Monday afternoon.

Also, ongoing work continues in Cooper County on the Route OO Bridge between Route M and Short Drive. That portion will remain closed through September; and other ongoing projects include the closure of the Route A bridge from Applewood Drive to Toledo Drive through May 17th.
