Resurfacing Of US 36 West of Cameron Begins Monday
Resurfacing on a portion of US 36, near the Caldwell County line begins Monday. The Missouri Department of Transportation says contractors will begin the work from just west of Interstate 35 to Grindstone Creek. The projects will include traffic reduced to a single lane in either direction as the resurfacing is completed.
Crews will mill off the old surface and then add two lifts of new asphalt through this area. The schedule of work on the projects includes two stages. The first stage will stretch from Grindstone Creek to just past the US 69 ramps. The second stage will begin where the first stage ended and continue east to just past the county line.
On Monday, contractor will close one lane of eastbound US 36 beginning at Grindstone Creek and progress east over a two-week period in approximately two-mile sections. One lane of US 36 in each direction will remain open at all times. During this first phase, the ramps at US 69 will close for the repaving of US 36. This work will take place during daylight hours with crews working six days per week.
The second stage of the project could begin as early as July 23. It will start where the first stage ended and continue to just past the Caldwell County line. This stage will include the repaving of the Interstate 35 ramps. The work during this second stage will be conducted as nighttime operations and will require the closure of the I-35 ramps. The closure of each ramp will last approximately one day. This second stage will take at least two weeks to complete.
