There may be some light at the end of the tunnel for the Bagnell Dam roadway project. That’s according to MoDOT Central District Area Engineer Bob Lynch who says, if the forecast doesn’t change, crews should be able to make a lot of headway on the remaining work…

“We need that certain temperature and with the good weather this week we should be able to get a lot of those joints down,” said Lynch. “They got the barrier curb pretty well completed and were just starting to do wrap-up work but, still, those joints take time and they take definitely warm weather and were hoping this week will be kind to us.”

Lynch also says other projects getting underway in the lake area include overlay work along Route-52 between 17 and 133, centerline work along Route-5 between Versailles and Tipton, and then work along 54 near Eugene.
