JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (KMIZ)

The Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission has approved multiple contracts to improve several Mid-Missouri roads.

Highway 63 to be resurfaced in Boone and Callaway Counties

The Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission approved a contract for resurfacing Highway 63 between Boone County Route B and Highway 54 in Callaway County.

In addition to the resurfacing, improvements will be added at various curves to increase travel safety, repairs to different bridge decks along Route 63, guardrail and guard cable improvements, and the resurfacing of Ponderosa Street from Gans Creek to East Meyer Industrial Drive south of Columbia.

The contract was awarded to Capital Paving and Construction after a bid of $15,350,303.

Improvements approved for Highway 54 in Callaway County

The Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission approved a contract to improve nearly seven miles of U.S. Route 54 in northern Callaway County.

This project will include resurfacing the eastbound and westbound lanes from just north of Kingdom City to the Audrain County line. Pace Construction was awarded the bid.

The Missouri Department of Transportation will announce the exact schedule for construction sometime in 2022.

Improvements coming to Highway 17 and 52 in Miller County after contract awarded

The Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission has approved a contract to apply a preventive maintenance surface sealing treatment to Routes 17 and 52 in Miller County.

The contract was awarded to Blevins Asphalt Construction to seal coat Highway 17 between Highway 42 and 52 and Highway 52 between Highway 54 and 17. Blevins winning bid for the project was $634,721.

Seal coats are a pavement repair process used by the Missouri Department of Transportation on roads with lower traffic volumes to maximize available resources and extend the life of a roadway.

The MoDOT says the work will take place in 2022.
