Pavement Sealing Work Planned for State Routes in Seven Southwest Missouri Counties Starting Week of June 14th

 Southwest District – State routes in seven (7) southwest Missouri counties are scheduled to be sealed with a mixture of rock and oil beginning the week of June 14, the Missouri Department of Transportation said.


Here’s a look at the locations:

  • Pettis County – Missouri Route 52 from Windsor east to U.S. Route 65 (13 miles)
  • Henry County – Route PP from Route C south to Missouri Route 7 at Tightwad (5.5 miles)
  • Benton County – Missouri Route 7 from U.S. Route 65 east to Benton/Camden county line (16.5 miles)
  • Hickory County – Route J from Missouri Route 64 west to end of state maintenance (2.5 miles)
  • Polk/Dallas counties – Missouri Route 64 from Polk/Hickory county line east to Dallas/Laclede county line (30.5 miles)
  • Dallas County – Missouri Route 32 from near Route H east to Dallas/Laclede county line (12.5 miles)
  • Bates County – Business Loop 49 from Bates County Routes F/D in Passaic south to Missouri Route 52 in Butler (4.5 miles)
  • Bates County – Route D from Business Loop 49 in Passaic east to near Route Z (2.5 miles)
  • Bates County – Missouri Route 18 from Route Y in Merwin east to I-49 in Adrian (14.5 miles)


Drivers also can expect flaggers and pilot cars directing them through the work zone. Drivers should wait for the pilot vehicle before proceeding through the work zone or before entering the work zone from a side road.


Signs and message boards will alert drivers to the work zone.


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


A seal coat is not an alternative to an asphalt overlay, but is planned for these roads as an economical way to maintain and preserve the roadway. The treatments keep a road from deteriorating and will extend its life.
