Drivers can expect one-lane traffic, lane closings and possible traffic delays during a project to improve road signs in 14 counties beginning the week of Aug. 26, the Missouri Department of Transportation said.
Contractor crews will install new curve signs in various locations. The new signs are being installed to comply with federal standards.
New, brighter “Wrong Way” and “Do Not Enter” signs will replace the current ones on various four-lane highway interchanges to combat wrong-way crashes. The contractor will replace as many signs as possible with the available money.
Here’s a look the project:
