A resurfacing project on Missouri Route 6 in Adair and Sullivan counties is set to begin Monday. The project will stretch from the Chariton River east of Novinger to Missouri Route 129 for a total length of approximately 14.5 miles.

Crews will first widen shoulders along the route and then resurface the roadway with new asphalt, according to a press release from the Missouri Department of Transportation.

Traffic will be reduced to one lane through the work zone while the work is completed. A pilot car will be used to move traffic through the work zone and message boards will be in place to alert motorists of the upcoming work.

Chester Bross of Palmyra was awarded the contract for the work in the amount of $2,595,497. They have 120 days to complete the project.
