Missouri 79 Resurfacing Starts Soon
(Hannibal)—Work is scheduled to begin Tuesday on a portion of MO 79 south of Hannibal.
MODOT says Phase One will involve closing the highway from Continental Cement south of Hannibal to the Route E and N Junction near Saverton. The segment will remain open to local traffic only; normal traffic will be routed on the signed detour. The work will continue 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The project includes a concrete overlay and shoulder improvements. Phase 2 begins in mid-August. It involves the portion of MO 79 from the Fulton Avenue junction in Hannibal to the cement plant. The project is expected to be complete by fall.
