Starting today, Missouri Department of Transportation work crews will begin the next phase of a high friction surface treatment project that increases motorist safety on several busy mid-Missouri roadways. Crews are beginning to apply the treatment to curves at various locations along Pulaski County Route T and westbound Interstate 44 between mile marker 159 near St. Robert and mile marker 156 near Waynesville. Surface treatment work at all locations is scheduled to be complete in three weeks. The work will take place during daily work hours with intermittent, single-lane closures where crews are operating. The I-44 work will take place during overnight hours and will also require intermittent, single-lane closures.
Signs will be in place to alert motorists of the daily lane closures and flaggers will be used to guide motorists through the work zones. Drivers will need to slow down and obey all signs in work zones. The complete project is expected to be completed by July 1st.
