Construction crews work into the night Tuesday in the southbound lane of Providence Road near Business Loop 70. The asphalt is being replaced as part of a preventive maintenance project that will increase the longevity of the concrete road bed below, said Kirsten Munck, assistant to the resident engineer at MoDOT.

COLUMBIA — Construction crews work by the glow of artificial lights at night, machinery rumbling and the smell of asphalt in the air. A new roadway surface for Providence Road is underway.

The resurfacing project, which started Monday, is preventive maintenance and will increase the longevity of the concrete road bed below, said Kirsten Munck, assistant to the resident engineer at the Missouri Department of Transportation. Construction will continue for the next few weeks, and work will be confined to the section of Providence Road between Business Loop 70 and Stadium Boulevard. All lanes will be open for the Fourth of July weekend, according to previous Missourian reporting.

Supervising editor is Brian Kratzer.
