Beginning on Mon., Apr. 10, 2023 and continuing through Fri., Apr. 14, 2023, the City of Sedalia’s Public Works Department partnering with the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) will be milling and overlaying E. Broadway Blvd. (U.S. Highway 50) between S. Massachusetts Ave. and S. Thompson Ave. During this period, lane closures will result in the roadway being reduced to a single lane of traffic in each direction. Travelers are encouraged to use alternate routes whenever possible to avoid delays.
Mill and overlay work will begin each day at 6:00 a.m. and continue through 5:00 p.m. until the project is complete. Congestion is expected due to the lane restrictions and the volume of traffic normally using this roadway. Heavy equipment and workers will be present in the roadway during this period. Lane closures and restrictions will be in effect during the mill and overlay operation. Plans are to mill and overlay the eastbound lanes (south side of roadway) on Mon., Apr. 10, 2023; the westbound lanes (north side of roadway) on Tues., Apr. 11, 2023; and the center lane on Wed., Apr. 12, 2023. Inclement weather or equipment breakdowns could delay completion of the paving operation.
Mill and overlay work had been planned for night time hours to avoid heavy traffic periods, but the company providing asphalt was unable to provide asphalt except during daytime hours. We apologize for any inconvenience as we work to improve roadway safety in the area.
