Scrub seal projects on Buchanan County Route 31 and U.S. Route 169 delayed https://www.modot.org/node/18990 18990 at https://www.modot.org Thu, 28 May 2020 13:40:01 +0000 Scrub seal projects on Buchanan County Route 31 and U.S. Route 169 delayed Visitor (not verified) Thu, 05/28/2020 - 14:40 ST. JOSEPH, Mo. – A rainy week has impacted the schedule for several scrub seal projects in the area. Crews from Vance Brothers, Inc., working with the Missouri Department of Transportation, hope to finish up Route FF this week, if weather allows. Once completed, they’ll move to Route 31 between U.S. Route 169 and U.S. Route 36. Route 31 should take two days to complete. Next, they expect to begin work on U.S. Route 169 between Route FF and the Clay County line on Wednesday, June 3, which is scheduled to continue for two weeks. During the scrub seal operation, the roadway will be reduced to one lane with flaggers and a pilot car directing motorist through the work zone. A scrub seal is a preventative maintenance treatment which rejuvenates the road surface and helps extend the life of the roadway by filling and sealing cracks in the existing asphalt with an emulsified asphalt/aggregate seal. MoDOT does its best to be good stewards of the monies provided by taxpayers. One of the ways is to employ many preventative maintenance methods, such as these. These are part of a larger project to seal roads across 13 counties in Northwest Missouri. Other planned routes are listed below in the planned order. Some routes may only take one day to complete, while others may continue for two weeks. All routes should be complete in early October: Route 31 in Buchanan County (U.S. Route 169 to U.S. Route 36) U.S. Route 169 in Buchanan and Clinton counties (Route FF to Clay County) Route 116 in Clinton County (U.S. Route 169 to the east city limits of Plattsburg and from Shoal Creek to I-35) Route 33 in DeKalb and Clinton counties (U.S. Route 36 to Route 116) Route 6 in DeKalb and Daviess counties (Route 31 to U.S. Route 69) Route W in Harrison County (Route M to U.S. Route 69) Route 13 in Harrison and Daviess counties (U.S. Route 69 to Route 6) Route 190 in Daviess County (Grundy County to Route F) Route W in Grundy County (Route 6 to Livingston County) Route 190 in Daviess and Livingston counties (Route V to U.S. Route 65) Route V in Daviess County (Route 6 to Route 190) Route 13 in Daviess and Caldwell counties (Route 6 to Ray County) Route 116 in Caldwell County (Route D to Route A) U.S. Route 69 in Clinton County (Evergreen Street in Cameron to Route 116) Route 33 in Clinton County (Route 116 to Clay County) Route PP in Clinton County (Route 33 to U.S. Route 69) Route 11 in Linn and Chariton counties (U.S. Route 24 to U.S. Route 36) Route 5 in Chariton County (U.S. Route 24 to Howard County) Some routes have already been completed in this bundle of projects: U.S. Route 136 in Atchison and Nodaway counties (just east of Little Tarkio Creek to U.S. Route 71) U.S. Route 136 in Atchison County (Interstate 29 to Route O) Route T in Andrew County (Route DD to County Road 401) Route O in Buchanan County (Route A to Route FF) Route FF in Buchanan County (Route H to U.S. Route 169) All work is weather-permitting, and schedules are subject to change.
