|MoDOT To Temporarily Close US Route 36 between Macon and Monroe City Today Closure to begin mid-morning|
MACON - The Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) has announced that it is preparing to temporarily close both the eastbound and westbound lanes of US Route 36 to traffic today between Macon and Monroe City. The temporary closure is expected to begin mid-morning and continue for several hours.
During the temporary closure eastbound traffic on US Route 36 will be detoured to US Route 63 at Macon to US Route 24 at Moberly to US Route 36 at Monroe City. Westbound traffic on US 36 will be detoured to US Route 24 at Monroe City to US Route 63 at Moberly to US Route 36 at Macon.
Lighted message boards to alert motorists of the detour will be placed on US Route 36 at Chillicothe, Macon, Monroe City and Hannibal and on US Route 24 at Moberly.
MoDOT will issue a press release prior to the actual closing of US 36.
Latest update is that he is coming in on a tour bus out of Quincy (when with this guy realize he's NOT a rock star!?) They are closing down 36 at 10:30 this morning. If you get here after that there are alternate routes to get to K & 36 shown on the map above.
A farmer has given us permission to stand along his field on the NORTHWEST CORNER. He's also given us permission to park on the gravel areas of the farmhouse on K, just north of 36 on the east side of the road. The media will be set up at the CDL lot on the corner but they said it wouldn't be a problem for us to walk thru to get to where we're going to be standing.
PLEASE, be considerate of this farmer and respect the area's he's given us permission to use. Keep it clean and don't go off the designated areas. We've had 3 straight days of rain so please park on the graveled areas. And if you see any trash help us keep it picked up.
When we're up on the edge of his land, that field has just been planted. Again, 3 days of rain it's deep mud, so please stay only in the grassy areas.
We are the only ones who have permission to be there, again on private property. If there are any intruders we have the right to ask to have the law enforcement remove them. We all have cell phones and we know how to use them!
Try to get up there by 10:00.
