Vernon County – Drivers can expect lane closures and traffic delays when a project to resurface U.S. Route 54 begins in Vernon County the week of July 5, the Missouri Department of Transportation said.

Contractor crews will lay a new asphalt surface, permanent lane markings and rumble strips along an approximately 16-mile stretch of Route 54 between the Missouri/Kansas state line and Webster Street in Nevada.

In addition, new guardrail will be added at bridge ends and culverts as well as repairing and widening shoulders in various locations.

Traffic Impacts:

  • Expect lane closures where contractor crews are laying asphalt
  • Drivers will encounter flaggers and/or pilot cars where crews are working. Drivers should wait for the pilot vehicle before proceeding through the work zone or before entering the work zone from a side road.

Weather and/or construction delays will alter the work schedule.

Project Information:

  • Prime contractor: APAC-Central, Springfield
  • Total project cost: $5.1 million
  • Completion date: November 8, 2021
