The Missouri Department of Transportation will close the intersections at Route Z and westbound Highway 50 and Route Z and County Road 650 beginning March 16 through April 15. All work is weather dependent.


These closures will enable MoDOT to complete new concrete pavement construction. Drivers are encouraged to use MoDOT’s signed detour that takes drivers north on Highway 131 to westbound Route HH and then from Route HH back to Route Z or find an alternate route. Motorists will also need to find an alternative route for County Road 650.


Motorists are reminded to slow down and pay attention while driving in work zones. Not all work zones look alike. Work zones can be moving operations, such as striping, patching or mowing. They can also be short term, temporary lane closures to make quick repairs or remove debris from the roadway.
