Concrete Street Improvements To Begin

Street improvements are getting underway in Kirksville. The City of Kirksville’s contractor, Stanton Contracting, will begin concrete street improvements today, with construction anticipated to last approximately eight to ten weeks, dependent upon weather. Locations include the following streets: Honda Drive from Suburban Drive to end of Cul-de-Sac; North New Street from Northtown Road / Highway P to Dogwood Lane; Intersection of North Mulanix Street and East Missouri Street; Grim Drive west of South Franklin Street; Gadwell Drive at Canvasback Drive. These repairs include complete removal of existing concrete surface and replacement of new base rock and concrete surface. Traffic Control will be in effect, and will be reduced to one lane, with temporary closure during construction to accommodate construction equipment. You should use caution, drive slowly through work areas, and use alternate routes when possible.
