A stretch of Highway 17 in Texas County has been approved for improvements in 2019.

The Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission approved a contract to microsurface a nearly 50-mile stretch covering four counties. The work, which was awarded for about $2.33 million to Vance Brothers, is between Iberia in Miller County and Roby in Texas County.

When a start date is established, MoDOT said it will alert the public through signs, news releases and social media.
