Some roadwork has been announced for next week in a part of Benton County which will mean motorists will need to alternate routes to get to where they are going.

That’s according to John Mitchell, from MoDOT, who says a collapsed pipe will be replaced underneath the roadway along Rte-P between Old-65 and Warner Avenue, west of Route-65, north of Lincoln.

The work is scheduled from 8:30am-3:00pm on Tuesday and Wednesday, January 4th and 5th.

Traffic impacts will include all lanes of Route-P which will be closed where crews are working.

All lanes of Route-P, however, will be open during the nighttime hours.

Motorists will also be able to access the driveways and entrances on both sides of the roadway in the work zone.

The work is weather permitting.
