CAMERON, Mo. – A scrub seal project to address several routes across Northwest Missouri is moving forward with one route completed today and the sealing of three additional routes beginning soon. Vance Brothers, Inc., working with the Missouri Department of Transportation, is finishing the scrub seal on Route 6 between Route 31 in DeKalb County and U.S. Route 69 in Daviess County today. Next, they’ll move to U.S. Route 69 in Clinton County from Evergreen Street in Cameron to Route 116. That portion of the project will begin tomorrow and should continue through July 8. There will be no work from noon on Thursday, July 2 through Monday morning, July 6, due to the Independence Day holiday.
After the completion of U.S. Route 69, crews will move to two other Clinton County routes: Route PP between Route 33 and U.S. Route 69 and Route 33 between Route 116 and the Clay County line.
During each of these scrub seal operations, the roadway will be reduced to one lane with flaggers and a pilot car directing motorist through the work zone. Drivers will experience delays, both directions, as they must wait for a pilot car. Drivers entering from a side road onto the route being sealed must also wait for a pilot car.
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 this.
These are part of a larger project to seal roads across 13 counties in Northwest Missouri. Other planned routes are listed below in the expected order. Some routes may only take one day to complete, while others may continue for up to two weeks. All routes should be complete in early October:
