Webster/Wright Counties -- An 8-and-1/2-mile stretch of Route 60 between Diggins and Cedar Gap is scheduled to be resurfaced beginning the week of April 1, the Missouri Department of Transportation said.
Drivers can expect lane closings in areas where crews are set up working between Wright County Route O near Cedar Gap and Webster County Route A near Diggins.
Crews will work during daytime hours for the first couple of weeks and then may shift to working nights to complete the project.
During the day, drivers can expect lane closings between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. When crews shift to night work, crews will work between 7 p.m. and 6 a.m.
All four driving lanes will be resurfaced with two layers of asphalt. Route 60 shoulders also will be resurfaced.
Until the final layer of asphalt is laid on the roadway, drivers may experience uneven pavement. Drivers are urged to use caution.
The contractor is Journagan Construction of Springfield, doing the project for a low bid amount of $5.5 million.
The project is scheduled for completion by November 1. However, contractor crews will work to complete the project by late spring.
