LACLEDE COUNTY — Contractors working for the Missouri Department of Transportation began pavement repair work on Interstate 44 in Laclede County Monday.

Crews are performing full-depth concrete pavement repairs in the eastbound and westbound lanes between Conway (mile marker 113) and Hazelgreen (mile marker 145). The work has closed one lane of I-44 in each direction from 7 p.m. until 7 a.m.

Message boards and signs are placed before the work zones to warn motorists of the lane closures. The Missouri Department of Transportation does not anticipate significant backups during work hours.
