The Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) will close one lane of northbound Route 65 at Rebar Road on Tuesday and Wednesday, and one lane of southbound Route 65 on Thursday.

The lane closures north of Sedalia will enable MoDOT crews to begin installing temporary stop lights at the intersection of 65 and Rebar Road near Nucor Steel.

Work will continue over the next several weeks to install temporary signals at 65 & Rebar Road, and Routes H and HH, MoDOT noted. Therefore there will be temporary lane closures throughout the process.

And as part of the signal installation, MoDOT will reduce the speed limit to 55 miles per hour in the area from Route HH south into Sedalia.
