(UPDATE) US-36 Pavement Repairs Resume

[Note:  Due to this past weekend’s winter storm and this current week’s forecasted weather, the project start date has been rescheduled from Monday, March 25 to Monday, April 1.)

Pavement repairs resume on US-36 highway in Brown and Doniphan counties.

Repair work on the project began late in October 2012 and was suspended for the winter season.

On Monday, March 25, contractors resumed work on a concrete pavement repair project across a 14.6-mile portion of U.S. 36 from just west of Ash Point Road in Brown County to east of East Locust Street in Troy (Doniphan County).

Project work includes full and partial depth patching of the existing concrete pavement. Work will take place during daylight hours, Monday through Friday, with some occasional Saturday work. The work will be coordinated so that all lanes will be opened to traffic by one-half before sunset.

Starting on Tuesday, March 26, eastbound and westbound U.S. 36 traffic will be reduced to one lane for both directions along with intermittent closures of adjacent cross roads during the project work hours.

Traffic will be directed through the project work zone via a pilot car and flagger operation. Drivers should expect delays of up to 15 minutes maximum and are encouraged to use alternate routes, if possible.
