MoDOT promises to fix Schuyler county roads damaged by wind farm by end of the year

SCHUYLER COUNTY, Mo. – Roads in Schuyler County are in need of maintenance – and now the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) is starting to make those repairs.

MoDOT plans to work on routes U, D, O and Y, announcing pavement and maintenance work for this week.

Routes E and J will also have pavement and maintenance work done, which is scheduled for July 19 through July 22.

This comes after several residents in the area have voiced their concerns over the condition of roads in the county.

The major issue for residents is the condition of the roads where the wind turbines were constructed.

Paula Gough, MoDOT’s Northeast Missouri Engineer says the company has heard the concerns, but weather has delayed some projects.

“That impacts MoDOT’s maintenance work as well as our contractor work,” Gough said. “But we will continue to work on those roads with the goal being by the end of this construction season that people will see quite a bit of improvement on those roadways.”

The work will start on Monday, June 12. Routes U and D will be the first roads to receive maintenance.
