Drivers can expect nighttime lane closings beginning as crews begin making instersection safety improvements along Route 160/13 between Plainview Road in Springfield and Buisness 13 in Stoneridge north of Kimberling City.
The project targets 19 intersections along the Route 160/13 corridor with contractor crews beginning work in the Nixa area.
Much of the work will take place at night with lane closings limited to the hours of 8 p.m. to 6 a.m.
Crews are installing work zone signs and other work zone items along the construction sites. The actual work to build the improvements will start in mid-July.
Drivers can expect flaggers on the road, directing them through the work zones. Drivers are also urged to follow pilot cars. Drivers on side roads should wait for the pilot vehicles before pulling onto Route 160/13.
Side roads could have lane reductions or could be closed at times. During full closings, drivers are urged to seek alternate routes.
People who live along Route 160/13 where the work is taking place could experience noisy conditions at night during the work.
A paving project between Springfield and Kimberling City for 160/13 will begin in August.
