Route U Boat Ramp To Mark Twain Lake In Monroe County To Close Temporarily

Work will begin soon to repair a Monroe County highway that has been closed since last August.

Weather-permitting, Monday Emory Sapp & Sons will begin repairing a roadway embankment slide and replacing culverts on Route U about a mile from Highway 107 near Florida.

Work will begin west of the Route U Mark Twain Lake boat ramp with culvert replacement and slide repair before moving to the east side of the ramp for additional culvert work.

Once work begins on the east side of the boat ramp, it will not be accessible through mid-August while all paving and guardrail work is completed.
