More road work is scheduled for Newton County. Drivers can expect lane closures and delays on Highway 86 through Neosho for a resurfacing project that will begin on Monday. Crews will resurface Route 86 between Kodiak Road and Business 60 (Neosho Boulevard) and a section between College Street and Route 60. In addition to the resurfacing, the highway will also be widened to include two-foot wide shoulders with rumble strips.
Flaggers will guide you through the work zone. Signs and message boards also will be set-up. All work will be done during daytime hours except for the portion within the Neosho city limits. That work will be done during nighttime hours between 7 p.m. and 7 a.m.
The $1.2 million project will be completed by December 1st, but the contractor expects to project to be finished by late September.
