A project to resurface a little over 41 miles of roadway in Lincoln and Montgomery Counties has recently been awarded by the Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission.
The projects in Lincoln County include resurfacing on Route Y from Route W to MO 79 near Foley, Route E from Route UU in Silex to US 61 and Route H from MO 47 to Route E; in Montgomery County MO 161 will be resurfaced from Route M to MO 19 north junction in Montgomery City. Pace Construction Co. of St. Louis, MO was the successful bidder with a bid of $2,036,613.94.
Also in Lincoln County, a project to chip seal MO 79 from the Pike County line to MO 47 near Winfield was awarded to Blevins Asphalt Construction Co., Inc. of Mt. Vernon, MO for $414,998.26. “This process seals the existing road surface protecting it from weathering and water damage, and lengthens the life of the road depending on the previous condition and the amount of traffic the road receives,” explains MoDOT Area Engineer Erik Maninga.
The work has yet to be scheduled by the contractors, but is expected to take place between the spring and fall of next year.
