Thompson Boulevard Resurfacing Project begins October 3
Beginning on Monday, Oct. 3, and continuing through Wednesday, Oct. 26, the City of Sedalia’s contractor will be milling, repairing base failures, paving and applying lane markings along Thompson Boulevard from the Missouri Department of Transportation’s right-of-way at West Broadway Blvd (U.S. Highway 50) to West 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 Monday, Oct. 3 through Thursday, 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 Monday, 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 nighttime hours.
Beginning at 9 p.m. until 7 a.m. each day from Monday, Oct. 17 through Thursday, 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 Wednesday, Oct. 26, weather permitting.
“We apologize for any inconvenience as we 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,” the City said.
