Road Closure: December 12th-22nd

The City of Monett would like to give notice that Rte. 37 from Broadway to Cale Street will be closed from December 12 to December 22, perhaps longer if weather causes delays, to allow the sewer line underneath Central Avenue to be replaced. The City is having a technology called ‘pipe bursting’ done to replace the pipe. This consists of running a tool through the pipe, bursting it, and widening the hole, then pulling pipe back through. This will allow for a quicker project as only the manhole locations and sewer services for houses will have to be dug up. Bennett, Inc. of Lamar won the bid to do the work. This is work in advance of the Central Avenue upgrade.
There will be changeable message boards located throughout the area with information on the closing. Detour signing will be set for Rte. 37 for through traffic. There will not be detours on City streets, local traffic will need to be aware and find alternate streets to get around this area.
