The Missouri Department of Transportation was expected to begin a culvert pipe-replacement project on Hwy. V south of De Soto on Monday (June 1). It will take more than two months to complete the project, MoDOT announced.
Crews were scheduled to close the section of Hwy. V at Joachim Creek east of Hwy. 67 and west of Hwy. JJ on Monday. That section of road is projected to be reopened to local traffic in mid-August.
Motorists may use Hwy. JJ as alternate routes during the closure, MoDOT suggested.
The project follows one MoDOT started in April on Hwy. V at Hardin Road to address sliding issues. That work is projected to last until early October. MoDOT suggests Hwy. 110 as an alternative route until that project is completed.
