Greene County -- An 8-1/2 mile stretch of Route 160 between Ash Grove and Willard is set for resurfacing and new shoulders with rumble strips beginning Monday, March 18, the Missouri Department of Transportation said.
Drivers can expect one-lane traffic where crews are set up working.
The work will take place between 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
The work will take place between Greene County Farm Road 9 west of Ash Grove and Route 123 at Willard.
Both driving lanes will be resurfaced and two-foot wide shoulders will be added to the roadway.
In addition, edgeline rumble strips will be installed in the shoulders.
The project also includes resurfacing and adding shoulders to Greene County Route CC between Route 13 and Route 65 in Fair Grove.
The contractor on both projects is APAC-Missouri of Columbia, doing the projects for a low bid amount of $1.6 million.
Both projects are scheduled for completion by November 1. However, contractor crews will work to complete the Route 160 project by early May.
The Route CC project will begin after the Route 160 project is complete.
