Drivers can expect lane closings beginning in mid-August when a project to make intersection safety improvements and resurface U.S. 60 begins between a point east of Industry Road in Rogersville and Skyline Road in Seymour, according to the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT).

The project targets six intersections along the U.S. 60 corridor with contractor crews beginning work in Seymour.

For the first couple of weeks in August, motorists will see work-zone signs and other work-zone items installed.

The actual work to build the improvements will start in about two weeks.

Traffic impacts include:

• Around-the-clock lane closings where crews are resurfacing roadways.

• Crews and equipment close to traffic in areas.

• During higher traffic-volume times, expect occasional delays.

• During the intersection work, turn lanes may be closed at times. Drivers may need to seek alternate routes to get to their destinations.

Here’s a look the intersection and resurfacing projects:
