Resurfacing of Highway 7 to begin on May 20

JEFFERSON CITY – Drivers using Route 7 from Greenview to Highway 65 need to be aware of roadwork that might impact driving throughout the summer.

A pavement improvement project is set to begin in mid-May on Missouri Route 7 from Highway 65 in Benton County to Route 5 in Camden County at Greenview.

Construction crews will begin the resurfacing work in Benton County on Monday, May 20, 2024. 

For the duration of the project, from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, one lane of Route 7 will be closed in two-mile segments. Flaggers with a pilot car will direct motorists through the work zone.

The construction crew will start at Highway 65, just south of Warsaw, and progress east to Route 5 in Greenview. 

This project also includes resurfacing Routes NN, DD, and Z in Camden County.

The schedule for these routes has yet to be determined.

The Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission awarded a $5,317,932.20 contract to Capital Paving and Construction, LLC for this work, which is anticipated to be completed by November 1, 2024, by contract.

All work is weather-dependent and schedules are subject to change.
