Construction of a Roundabout at
Route 60 & Route 43 In Newton County to Begin Week of
Sept. 6, 2016
Seneca – Work to construct a single-lane roundabout at the intersection of U.S. Route 60 and Missouri Route 43 near Seneca is scheduled to begin the week of September 6, the Missouri Department of Transportation said. Contractor crews will construct the new single-lane roundabout to replace the current four-way stop configuration with its stop signs and flashing red signals at the intersection. The project also includes installation of street lighting.
The intersection will remain open to traffic during construction. However, drivers can expect traffic delays due to narrowed lanes at times and occasional lane closures. During times of one-lane traffic, flaggers will guide drivers through the work zone.
Contractor crews will work primarily during daytime hours, with some nighttime work for paving.
Signs and message boards will alert drivers approaching the work zone.
Weather and/or construction delays will alter the work schedule.

The City of Seneca places city ordinances online ….
The Seneca City Council in cooperation with the Seneca Area Chamber of Commerce has placed the City of Seneca Ordinances, Seneca City Council Meeting Minutes and other important city documentation online.
Seneca City Clerk Cyndy Hutchings stated “placing ordinances online will make it easier for the community and contractors to find the city ordinances.” According to Hutchings city hall receives several request a month about city ordinances. Until now Hutchings would have to physically look up the ordinances and photo copy the ordinance (s) for the person requesting them. The new online version makes searching the ordinance’s quicker and allows you to print, down load a pdf, email and share the information through social media. Not only is this upgrade going to be a helpful tool for the community it will benefit City Council Members by allowing them to have the ordinances at their fingertips 24/7.
