Various Routes in Bates County Scheduled for Resurfacing Beginning the Week of April 5th

Bates County – Drivers can expect lane closures and occasional traffic delays on various routes in Bates County for a resurfacing project beginning the week of April 5th, the Missouri Department of Transportation said.


These are the routes impacted by this project:

  • Route F from Route J east approximately 10 miles to Business Loop 49 in Passaic
  • Route J from the Missouri/Kansas State line near Amsterdam east approximately 5.5 miles to Route F
  • Route Y from Route J north approximately 4.6 miles to Missouri Route 18
  • Route A from the Missouri/Kansas state line east approximately 16.6 miles to I-49


Contractor crews will add on one-inch overlay of new asphalt to the above routes. In addition, Route F will have new guardrail installed in areas.


Traffic impacts:

  • Traffic reduced to one lane where contractor crews are laying asphalt
  • Drivers will encounter flaggers and pilot cars where crews are working. Drivers should wait for the pilot vehicle before proceeding through the work zone or before entering the work zone from a side road.
  • Work will be done during daytime hours, all lanes open to traffic at night
  • No signed detour
  • Drivers should find alternate routes
  • Signs and message boards will alert drivers approaching the work zone


Drivers are urged to use caution as they may experience a rough ride in areas until the resurfacing project is complete.

Weather and/or scheduling delays could alter the work schedule.
