It's summertime, and with it comes roadway construction and repair work. Crews from M.O.D.O.T. (Missouri Department of Transportation) will be active in the days and week ahead with various road projects.

Such is the case today. M.O.D.O.T. crews will have traffic reduced to one lane on southbound U.S. 61 on the U.S. 24 overpass south of Palmyra until approximately 4 pm today. Those crews will be doing concrete patching working the driving surface of the overpass.

Now tomorrow, the intersection of 33rd and Maine Streets in Quincy will be changing.  Usually you will find a traffic signal there but after today, no more for approximately eight weeks. In its place will be temporary stop signs to regulate traffic flow there. The traffic signals are being removed and will be replaced in conjunction with the Safe Routes to School Project.  The changes are being made to match up to the redesign of the Quincy Senior High School parking lot which is being done to streamline access into and out of the parking lot onto Maine Street.

Also tomorrow (June 26), look for Maine Street from 5th to 6th streets to be closed to through traffic from 6am to 5pm so a large crane can be set up in that area.  The crane will be utilized to hoist electronic equipment to the rooftop of the Western Catholic Building at 510 Maine Street.
