Clinton Road Milling Work Under Way; Asphalt Paving Begins Next Week
On April 4, 2022, City Council approved the purchase of the new milling machine from Foley Equipment at a cost of $522,500 for a Caterpillar PM312-02B Cold Planer (miller). The new machine is expected to last 15 to 20 years.
Council also approved the purchase of a Weiler Commercial Asphalt Paver P385B at a cost of $228,390, as well as a Caterpillar skid steer loader ($91,900) discounted to $78,200 with a trade-in of the City's current Bobcat, worth $13,700.
The 4-foot wide milling machine, as well as the paver, have been put to good use in Sedalia since its purchase, and allows the City of Sedalia to perform this type of work in-house.
The milling machine was used Sunday night/Monday morning to work on Clinton Road between Grand and 32nd. The milling work will continue through Friday. Then next week, asphalt paving will begin, using the same work schedule.
The 26-foot wide road is closed during that 12-hour period.
