The intersection of Missouri and Monroe is closed due to work for the City’s 2017 concrete project.

This project will flatten North Missouri Street to reduce the steep grade at the intersection. The duration of closure is unknown at this time; however, it is hoped that work will be completed within four weeks.

At the June 12 city council meeting, council members voted to allow City Manager Bruce Slagle to sign a contract with Rhad A. Baker Construction LLC from Fulton for the job.

The sidewalks at the intersection will also need to be replaced to meet ADA standards.
