Contract Awarded for Resurfacing, Chip Seal Projects in NE Missouri

HANNIBAL, MO (STL.News) The Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission recently awarded a contract to Emery Sapp & Sons, Inc., of Columbia, Missouri, for projects in Marion, Monroe, Ralls and Shelby counties in the amount of $3,821,943.42.  The work will include more than 25 miles of resurfacing and nearly 77 miles of chip seals.

“Pavement preservation projects like chip seals help us to extend the life of our pavement.  By extending the pavement’s life, we can better manage our roads and get the most out of our funds,” explained Missouri Department of Transportation Area Engineer Brian Untiedt.

The chip seal projects include crews applying liquid asphalt which helps seal off any cracks that may be in the road surface followed by the application of small aggregate rock.  Typically, within a few days, the rock has either been embedded into the oil or has been removed from the surface.  The purpose of this operation is to extend the life of the pavement by infusing it with oil.

The projects are as follows:

  1. Route H (Marion/Ralls County): resurface from U.S. Route 36 to Missouri Route 19 at Center, the total length of improvement being 13.541 miles.
  2. Route A (Marion County): resurface from Missouri Route 6 to Missouri Route 168 near Palmyra, the total length of improvement being 8.387 miles.
  3. Route DD (Ralls County): resurface from U.S. Route 36 to end of state maintenance near Huntington Lane, the total length of improvement being 3.718 miles.
  4. Route J (Ralls County): chip seal from U.S. Route 36 to Missouri Route 154 at Perry, the total length of improvement being 19.123 miles.
