MARYVILLE, Mo. — New asphalt will be put down on portions of First Street/Route 46 in Maryville next week, the Missouri Department of Transportation announced Thursday.

MoDOT maintenance crews plan to close the road in one block segments from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday, July 15 through Friday, July 19. As they complete a one-block section of First Street, they will reopen it and move to the next section, the agency said in a press release. 

Most side streets will remain open throughout the project, but could close for brief periods to complete repairs. The project will extend from Main Street to Icon Road. All work is weather dependent and could change.

A resurfacing project done under contract is scheduled in MoDOT's Statewide Transportation Improvement Program for fiscal year 2021. That project will extend from U.S. Route 71 to Route 113.
