Route K in Reynolds County - Periodic Lane Closures for Tree Trimming

WILLOW SPRINGS - Route K in Reynolds County - As both a safety measure and to prepare for the winter snow season, the Missouri Department of Transportation will begin tree trimming Tuesday, Jan. 3 through Friday, Jan. 13 on Route K in Reynolds County. Once work begins, tree trimming will take place during the hours of 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday on Route K from County Road 452 to County Road 334.

Tree branches hanging over MoDOT right of way more than 15 feet from the edge of the pavement will be trimmed with a large mechanical tree trimmer. The tree-trimming operation will take approximately two weeks to complete, weather permitting.

"We trim trees as a safety measure for motorists," said Assistant District Maintenance Engineer Stan Johnson. "Trimming trees improves sight distances on the highway, reduces the possibility of overhanging limbs falling in the roadway during snow and ice storms, and helps with the efficiency of snow removal."

PERIODIC LANE CLOSURES will occur on Route K due to the size of the trimmer and as branches are cleared from the roadway. Flaggers will be present to provide traffic control and message boards will placed be at both ends of the work area to alert motorists.

For additional information, contact MoDOT’s Customer Service Center toll-free at 1-888-ASK-MODOT (1-888-275-6636) or visit www.modot.org/southeast.
