Beginning on Mon., Oct. 3, and continuing through Wed., Oct. 26, the City of Sedalia’s contractor will be milling, repairing base failures, paving and applying lane markings along Thompson Blvd., from the Missouri Department of Transportation’s right-of-way at W. Broadway Blvd (U.S. 50 Highway) to W. 16th Street.

During this period, there will be intermittent lane closures and restrictions as road improvements occur with heavy equipment and personnel in and around the roadway. Travelers are encouraged to use alternate routes when possible during the construction period.

From Mon., Oct. 3 through Thurs. Oct. 6, the contractor plans to mill the roadway, which removes the failed surface material to allow for resurfacing. At least one lane in each direction is planned to remain open throughout the construction period.

Flaggers and temporary lane markings will be present along the roadway to assist drivers to remain in the open lanes.

During the week beginning Mon. Oct. 10, the contractor plans to patch base failures and other structural failures in and along the roadway. This work will require lanes to be closed while materials cure, so lane closures and restrictions will remain in effect during this period. Flaggers and temporary lane markings will again be present along the roadway to assist drivers to remain in the open lanes. Paving will be completed during night time hours.

Beginning at 9 p.m. until 7 a.m. each day from Mon., Oct. 17 through Thurs., Oct. 20, the contractor will be paving the roadway.

Lane closures and restrictions will be in effect during the paving operation. Upon completion of paving, lane markings will be applied to the roadway and the project totally completed by Wed., Oct. 26, weather permitting. City of Sedalia 200 S. Osage Sedalia, MO 65301 (660)827-3000

The City apologized for any inconvenience as they work to improve roadway safety in the area.

Please note that this work is dependent on weather conditions and may be delayed due to inclement weather.
