SIKESTON -The Missouri Department of Transportation's contractor will close Nash Road/County Road 218 from the west entrance of Do It Best Corporation to east of the Sewage Treatment Plant entrance as part of the improvements for the Route AB extension. The closure will begin Tuesday, June 28.
During the closure, the contractor will remove old pavement and place base rock for the new pavement.
Weather permitting, work will take place from Tuesday, June 28 through Thursday, June 30. Motorists should expect additional closures in July as the paving process continues with work completed by fall 2011.
The entire project includes grading and paving along the Route AB extension. Once completed, the improvements will directly connect Route 25 and Interstate 55.
