Beginning on Thursday, September 10, BRS Construction will begin making improvements to the sidewalks located along Business 54 in Mexico.
The work will take place on both sides of the road between Martin Luther King Drive and Christy Street for a little over a tenth of a mile.
The sidewalks, which are required by the American Disabilities Act, are being installed to comply with the federal law.
“We completed resurfacing of Business 54 last summer, and when we resurface a road, we are required to bring the adjacent pedestrian facilities into ADA compliance,” said MoDOT Area Engineer Brian Haeffner. “Since we are a total transportation agency, improving sidewalks fits into our mission,” he explained.
If you have questions about this or other transportation issues in your area, please call MoDOT’s Customer Service Center toll-free at 1-888 ASK MODOT or visit our website at http://www.modot.mo.gov/northeast/.
