Road work will continue next week on a northern St Clair County route. Crews with the Missouri Department of Transportation will close portions of Route A between Lowry City and Appleton City to replace drainage pipes throughout the next week. The closures were scheduled for this week, but cold temperatures delayed the work. Weather could again delay the project. The roadway will be closed beginning Monday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. and each day until Friday. The pipes scheduled for replacement are between Routes M and E.
