SIKESTON, MO (KFVS) - The Missouri Department of Transportation's (MoDOT) work to re-stripe various state routes throughout southeast Missouri on interstates and major routes began in March 2014.
Crews will now shift to stripe state routes in southeast Missouri's cities and towns. According to MoDOT, striping crews will re-stripe state routes in Cape Girardeau, Poplar Bluff, Sikeston, Dexter, Kennett and Malden overnights.
Striping work will begin at 6 p.m., with work ending at 4:30 a.m. daily.
The work will begin on Sunday, May 11, and is expected for two weeks, weather permitting.
Drivers are asked to slow down when coming up behind a slow-moving striping caravan.
The striping trucks move between eight-12 mph when work is underway.
MoDOT encourages drivers to use caution in and around the striping equipment and crew workers.
