MoDOT Seals Route MM, Highway 15 in Scotland County

HANNIBAL - MoDOT crews were busy last week cinder-sealing Routes MM and Highway 15 in Scotland County. Crews worked on Route MM south of Memphis on Monday, September 8, and continued the process on Route 15 in Memphis and north of town on Tuesday and Wednesday, September 9 and 10. Traffic was reduced to one lane between the hours of 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. daily.

Cinder sealing is a preventative maintenance measure that helps preserve the current condition of the road, but doesn’t contribute to the smoothness of the surface. The project consists of placing a thin overlay of chips and oil on the roadway to seal and protect the pavement and extend the pavement life. The roadway can be driven on soon after applied, however motorists are encouraged to drive slow on the newly sealed road or to use an alternate route to avoid delays.

Crews were on the roads during daylight work hours, with traffic reduced to one lane with flaggers and a pilot car controlling traffic through the work zone.
