Governor Parson Issues Statement Regarding Income Tax Cut Approved by Missouri General Assembly

Jefferson City

Governor Parson issued the following statement regarding the General Assembly approving income tax cut legislation: 
“We are thrilled that the General Assembly has answered our call to cut Missourians’ taxes and return some of their hard-earned dollars. We called this special session to pass and extend critical support to our agriculture industry and reduce Missourians’ income tax burden, and that’s exactly what we are accomplishing.”
“Today’s action will provide real relief to taxpaying Missourians. Relief that is even more critical now as Missouri families face rising grocery bills, high gas prices, and record inflation. This bill means our administration will have cut Missourians’ income tax rate by almost a full percentage point or a nearly 15 percent decrease. Next week, we look forward to progress being made on the agriculture bill, so we can sign both pieces of legislation into law.”
Earlier today, Governor Parson issued a special message to the legislature that modifies the special session call to include small changes outside the original call but still within the subjects of agriculture and income tax cuts.

MoDOT Launches Environmental Study for US 412 in Dunklin County

MoDOT Launches Environmental Study for US 412 in Dunklin County

SIKESTON – The Missouri Department of Transportation is launching an Environmental Study for U.S. Route 412 in Dunklin County. The Environmental Study is the first step in planning future capacity improvements for the 20-mile section of U.S. 412 from Route AC near the Arkansas border to just east of Route Y near Kennett, Missouri.
“This section of U.S. 412 is the primary east-west corridor in the bootheel of Missouri, and it is critical to roadway users locally and across the country. This study will help us evaluate our options for increasing capacity and carefully consider the impact of those options,” said MoDOT Project Manager David Wyman.
The Environmental Study will begin the process of collecting data and gathering public input. These are the first steps in identifying potential project challenges, assessing needs along the corridor, and gauging public sentiment regarding improvements to Route 412. The goal of this work is to establish the purpose of improving Route 412 and what needs drive potential improvements.
MoDOT will work closely with the Federal Highway Administration on the Environmental Study to make sure it is prepared according to guidelines in the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA).
Input from stakeholders and the public will be an important part of the study. MoDOT plans to offer multiple opportunities for public input including a public opinion survey, public meetings, and collaboration with a Citizens Advisory Group of local representatives. All public input opportunities will be posted well in advance through local media and on the project website at modot.org/412.
Public input activities are anticipated to begin in early 2023. Field work and technical analysis will begin this fall.
“We expect the Environmental Study to be complete by the end of 2023,” Wyman explained. “Although funding has not been secured for future construction on this corridor, it has been designated as an unfunded transportation need by the Bootheel Regional Planning Commission, so we are able to begin the planning process.”
The Dunklin County Commission contributed $500,000 toward the completion of the environmental work.
For additional information, contact Wyman (573) 472-9021, MoDOT’s Customer Service Center toll-free at 1-888-ASK-MODOT (1-888-275-6636) or visit www.modot.org/southeast. To sign-up for the project’s email distribution list, please visit modot.org/412.

JACKSON COUNTY – Crews will be completing landscaping work and pavement work along portions of U.S. Route 50 and Chipman Road in Lee’s Summit beginning on Thursday, Sept. 29. Motorists are advised to plan ahead and consider alternate routes if necessary. All work is weather permitting:
Thursday, Sept. 29
Crews will be completing landscaping work that will require a right lane closure in both direction along Chipman Road between Murray Road and Blue Parkway beginning at 7 a.m. until 5 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 29
Friday, Sept. 30
Crews will close the left two turns lanes of the ramp from eastbound U.S. Route 50 to Chipman Road for pavement resurfacing and striping beginning at 7 a.m. until 5 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 30. Left turns onto Chipman Road will not be allowed during this time.
Monday, Oct. 3
Crews will close the left two turns lanes of the ramp from eastbound U.S. Route 50 to Chipman Road for pavement resurfacing and striping beginning at 7 a.m. until 5 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 3. Left turns onto Chipman Road will not be allowed during this time.
Crews recently completed the bridge replacement at U.S. 50 over Chipman Road. This portion of Chipman Road had been closed for several months as part of the replacement of the U.S. Route 50 bridges. Originally anticipated to be completed by February 2023, crews have completed the project nearly five months ahead of schedule. The former structures were built in 1975 and pre-dated many of the residents and businesses that rely on it. In addition to the new bridges, this project also made ADA improvements including the addition of sidewalks along both sides of Chipman Road.
This project is included in Gov. Mike Parson’s $351 million Focus on Bridges Program, which will repair or replace 250 bridges across the state. For full details, visit our project webpage.

Seal Coat Operations to Impact Traffic on Route K in St. Francois County
Visitor (not verified)
Wed, 09/28/2022 – 09:10

SIKESTON – Missouri Department of Transportation crews will be making driving surface improvements on Route K in St. Francois County. 
This section of roadway is located from Shady Lane to Saffell Road near Bonne Terre, Missouri. 
Weather permitting, work will take place Thursday, Sept. 29 from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.  
Seal coats are a pavement repair process that is used by MoDOT on roads with lower traffic volumes to maximize available resources and extend the life of the roadway. Hot emulsion oil is sprayed onto the surface of the road, followed by finely ground rocks which are then compacted to adhere to the roadway.  Excess material is swept off the surface, leaving an improved roadway that will hold up longer against the elements.  
The method costs about one third the amount of a traditional asphalt overlay. The treatment keeps water from penetrating the surface, extends the life of the roadway up to seven years, and provides improved traction.  
The work zone will be marked with signs. Motorists are urged to use extreme caution while traveling near the area. 
For additional information, contact MoDOT’s Customer Service Center toll-free at 1-888-ASK-MODOT (1-888-275-6636), or visit www.modot.org/southeast.

Lane closure scheduled for Chipman Road between Murray Road and Blue Parkway on Sept. 28

Tue, 09/27/2022 – 15:25

JACKSON COUNTY – Crews will close the right lane of both eastbound and westbound Chipman Road between Murray Road and Blue Parkway beginning at 7 a.m. until 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 28 for landscaping work in the area. Motorists are advised to plan ahead or seek an alternate route if necessary.
Crews recently completed the bridge replacement at U.S. 50 over Chipman Road. This portion of Chipman Road had been closed for several months as part of the replacement of the U.S. Route 50 bridges. Originally anticipated to be completed by February 2023, crews have completed the project nearly five months ahead of schedule. The former structures were built in 1975 and pre-dated many of the residents and businesses that rely on it. In addition to the new bridges, this project also made ADA improvements including the addition of sidewalks along both sides of Chipman Road.
This project is included in Gov. Mike Parson’s $351 million Focus on Bridges Program, which will repair or replace 250 bridges across the state. For full details, visit our project webpage.

HANNIBAL – Weather permitting, the week of October 3, contractor crews and the Missouri Department of Transportation will start work on resurfacing Interstate 70 Outer Road in Montgomery and Warren counties from Route Y in Jonesburg to 0.15 mile west of West Warrenton Blvd. in Warrenton, with plans for completion by early November.  The length of improvement is 7.5 miles.
“Traffic will be reduced to one lane where crews are actively working, and motorists will be directed through the work zone with the use of flaggers and a pilot car.  Work will occur during daytime hours beginning at West Warrenton Blvd in Warrenton and progress west,” explained Missouri Department of Transportation Area Engineer Jeff Niemeyer.  “This route carries a considerable volume of local traffic.  We ask that motorists please be attentive in work zones for their safety and the safety of highway workers,” he added.  All work is weather dependent and signs and message boards will be in place to alert motorists, as schedule changes occur.   This contract was awarded last fall to Pace Construction Company of St. Louis, Missouri in the amount of $934,777.
With an increased number of highway work zones in Missouri, it is important all drivers pay attention every second while driving, especially through work zones.  Know before you go and stay informed of traffic impacts on your route by checking the MoDOT Traveler Information Map.  You can also subscribe to counties, various routes or even projects online at Customer Service Signon (mo.gov).  Be sure you and all your passengers are buckled up, and please put the phone down while driving.

Missouri Route 19 Bridge Replacement Over Interstate 70 in Montgomery County Begins

Missouri Route 19 Bridge Replacement Over Interstate 70 in Montgomery County Begins

Interchange Improvements Included to Increase Traffic Flow

Weather permitting, work is scheduled to begin as early as next week on the bridge replacement and interchange improvement project located on Missouri Route 19 over Interstate 70 in Montgomery County at mile marker 175, Hermann exit. 
This project will replace the bridge over I70 and include interchange improvements with two new roundabouts, enhancing traffic flow at this location to accommodate current and future area needs.  The new bridge will be constructed just west and adjacent to the existing bridge.  Input was received from area residents and stakeholders during a public meeting and comment period, held in February of 2020.  “Based on feedback from the public meeting, the design for the new interchange will be different from the existing interchange and will include two roundabouts one on each side of the bridge to decrease congestion and increase traffic flow.  These roundabouts are larger in comparison to other local roundabouts and specifically designed to accommodate large trucks and farm machinery that utilize this interchange.” explained Missouri Department of Transportation Area Engineer Jeff Niemeyer. 
During the course of construction, each roundabout will be built one half at a time to minimize traffic impacts.  No significant closures are scheduled until the Spring/Summer of 2023, however, drivers may experience minor detours to access area businesses at the interchange.  Overall construction will include six stages with completion anticipated in the Winter of 2023.  Within the initial phase of the project, work will begin on the substructure of the new bridge in addition to grading, tree removals, and installation of temporary pavement at various locations needed for managing traffic in later stages of construction.   There will be no substantial traffic impacts on Missouri Route 19, I-70 or the I-70 ramps during this stage of work.
“The entire area of the interchange will be an active work zone over the next year.  We would like to remind drivers to please slow down, obey all signs and eliminate distractions while driving.  The safety of the traveling public and our workers is our top priority,” stated Niemeyer. Signs and message boards will be in place to alert motorists, as schedule changes occur.  MoDOT will alert the public about the project through signs, news releases and social media. For additional information, including images and videos covering project overview, construction staging details and traffic movements, please visit the project website at www.modot.org/missouri-route-19-bridge-replacement-and-interchange-improvement-over-i-70.

JACKSON COUNTY – Crews with the Buck O’Neil Bridge replacement project will be re-opening the following routes beginning on Thursday, Sept. 29. These roads were previously closed as part of the construction for the Buck O’Neil bridge. There will no lane closures for this work and crews anticipate that the roadways will be re-opened by 3 p.m. All work is weather permitting.
Crews will make the following traffic pattern changes:
Washington Street from 5th Street to 4th Street will return to two way traffic.

Two Months after Historic Flooding, over $85 Million in Assistance has been Approved for St. Louis Area Residents

September 26, 2022

Jefferson City

Governor Mike Parson today announced that two months after historic flooding impacted the St. Louis area, more than $85 million in assistance has been approved to help area residents and businesses recover. The assistance includes over $35 million in direct grants to more than 11,300 renters and homeowners.
“From July 25 to 28, the St. Louis region was hit with record rainfall of up to 10 or more inches that flooded homes, vehicles, and businesses, often in areas that had never experienced such flooding in the past,” Governor Parson said. “Even as the flooding was still ongoing, neighbors, faith-based organizations, and community partners started pulling together to assist people in need. We are glad this vitally important federal and state assistance is getting to residents and businesses, so they can recover, rebuild, and move forward. We urge residents affected by the flooding in St. Louis, St. Louis County, and St. Charles County to apply for assistance from FEMA before the October 7 deadline.”
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has approved $35.6 million in Individual Assistance grants for renters and homeowners for emergency home repairs, repair or replacement of essential personal property, rental assistance, and other serious needs not covered by insurance.
The National Flood Insurance Program has paid $27.9 million in claims for flood insurance policyholders.
The U.S. Small Business Administration has approved over $21.7 million in disaster loans for 663 homeowners, renters, and businesses.
Forty-six eligible local government agencies and nonprofit organizations from the City of St. Louis and St. Louis, St. Charles, and Montgomery counties have submitted requests for FEMA Public Assistance to obtain reimbursement for emergency response costs and to rebuild and replace roads, bridges, and other infrastructure damaged or destroyed in the flooding.
Before federal assistance was approved, the State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA) and voluntary and community organizations active in disasters, including the Red Cross, organized Multi-Agency Resource Centers (MARCs) that took place over eight days and provided one-stop-shop assistance for those impacted by the flooding. A total of more than 7,450 people were helped by the MARCs with emergency financial assistance, food stamp replacement, insurance information, and other assistance. 
Missouri has also received a $435,000 federal Crisis Counseling Program (CCP) to assist peopled emotionally impacted by the flooding through mental health counseling. The grant was received by the Missouri Department of Mental Health (DMH). DMH is in the process of applying for an additional CCP grant that would continue the counseling services for an additional nine months.
Governor Parson’s request for a federal major disaster declaration was approved by President Joe Biden on August 8. The federal major disaster declaration also makes available federal mitigation grants to improve infrastructure to prevent damage from future severe storms. Prior to the federal disaster declaration, Governor Parson declared a state of emergency in Missouri and activated the State Emergency Operations Plan, allowing state agencies to coordinate directly with local jurisdictions to provide emergency services.  
People affected by the disaster in St. Louis City, St. Louis County, and St. Charles County have three ways to apply and stay in touch with FEMA:

JACKSON COUNTY – Crews will close the right lane of both eastbound and westbound Chipman Road between Murray Road and Blue Parkway beginning at 7 a.m. until 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 27 for landscaping work in the area. Motorists are advised to plan ahead or seek an alternate route if necessary.
Crews recently completed the bridge replacement at U.S. 50 over Chipman Road. This portion of Chipman Road had been closed for several months as part of the replacement of the U.S. Route 50 bridges. Originally anticipated to be completed by February 2023, crews have completed the project nearly five months ahead of schedule. The former structures were built in 1975 and pre-dated many of the residents and businesses that rely on it. In addition to the new bridges, this project also made ADA improvements including the addition of sidewalks along both sides of Chipman Road.
This project is included in Gov. Mike Parson’s $351 million Focus on Bridges Program, which will repair or replace 250 bridges across the state. For full details, visit our project webpage.

First Lady Teresa Parson to Host Food Drive on Mansion Lawn

Jefferson City

Today, Governor Mike Parson and First Lady Teresa Parson announced that the Missouri State Capitol and Governor’s Mansion will be lighted orange beginning at sunset tonight, September 26, 2022, until sunrise tomorrow, September 27, 2022.
“When people think of hunger and food insecurity, they may often think of people in other cities, other states, or other nations, but the reality is these issues exist right here in our local communities,” Governor and First Lady Parson said. “Extending a helping hand to those in need is one of the most important acts of service we are called to do, and we encourage all Missourians to do their part. By donating a non-perishable food item, volunteering at a food bank, or making a financial contribution, we can help do our part to ensure food is not an impossible choice. Together, we can make a difference.”
Governor Parson proclaimed September 2022 as Hunger Action Month to bring awareness to the need to combat hunger in Missouri and encourage involvement in efforts to end hunger in local communities. View the proclamation here. 
The lighting of the Capitol Dome and Governor’s Mansion will coincide with First Lady Parson’s food drive on the Mansion lawn. The First Lady will host the tailgate style event tonight, September 26 from 5 – 7 p.m. and be joined by the Lincoln University football team and representatives from The Food Bank for Central & Northeast Missouri. 
All individuals and families are encouraged to attend. The First Lady invites attendees to bring a non-perishable food item to donate or to make a financial contribution at http://weblink.donorperfect.com/Heart2022.

Partners are gearing up for BUPD Day, Friday, October 21st

HANNIBAL – The NE Coalition for Roadway Safety will hold its quarterly meeting on Thursday, September 29, from 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. virtually.  The executive committee of the Coalition will provide updates on specific areas, and anyone interested in helping to reduce fatalities on Missouri roads is encouraged to attend.

“Now that schools are back in session and in-person events have opened up, we have a lot of opportunities to interact not only with young drivers, but also with businesses, enforcement and health care agencies as we gear up for BUPD Day on Friday, October 21st,” explained NE Coalition Facilitator Marisa Ellison.  BUPD is an acronym for buckle up phone down, a MoDOT campaign that supports safe driving.  “We have several partners in law enforcement, emergency management services, schools and health care who work together to continue efforts to promote safe driving, yet we still have a very tragic statistic in that 90% of those killed on roads in northeast Missouri were not wearing a seat belt, compared to 60% statewide,” she continued.

The Coalition will review Missouri’s highway safety strategic plan titled “Show-Me Zero,” and evaluate their plan for northeast Missouri drivers and residents, as well as finalize the BUPD Day plan for the region.  Questions about the meeting can be directed to Ellison at marisa.ellison@modot.mo.gov.

JACKSON COUNTY – Crews have re-opened Chipman Road between Murray Road and Blue Pkwy. in Lee’s Summit as of Friday, Sept. 23. This portion of Chipman Road had been closed for several months as part of the replacement of the U.S. Route 50 bridges. Originally anticipated to be completed by February 2023, crews have completed the project nearly five months ahead of schedule. The former structures were built in 1975 and pre-dated many of the residents and businesses that rely on it. In addition to the new bridges, this project also made ADA improvements including the addition of sidewalks along both sides of Chipman Road. This project is included in Gov. Mike Parson’s $351 million Focus on Bridges Program, which will repair or replace 250 bridges across the state. For full details, visit our project webpage.
Motorists should note that there is the potential of future lane closures for landscaping work. All work is weather permitting.

Governor Parson Makes 100th Judicial Appointment with Appointment of Judge Renee Hardin-Tammons to Missouri Court of Appeals Eastern District

September 23, 2022

Jefferson City

Today, Governor Mike Parson marked the 100th judicial appointment of his administration with the appointment of Judge Renee Hardin-Tammons to the Missouri Court of Appeals Eastern District. 
Judge Renee Hardin-Tammons, of Olivette, currently serves as a Circuit Court Judge in the 21st Judicial Circuit. She obtained a Bachelor of Science in the administration of justice from the University of Missouri–St. Louis and a Juris Doctor from the University of Missouri–Columbia School of Law.
“Judge Hardin-Tammons brings a wealth of experience from her legal career and tenure on the circuit bench to the Court of Appeals,” Governor Parson said. “She represents the values that are important for the judiciary, including a faithful interpretation of the law, a drive for excellence, and a tireless work ethic.”
Judge Hardin-Tammons was appointed to the Circuit bench by Governor Parson in 2019. She will fill the vacancy created by the retirement of Judge Colleen Dolan.
The Appellate Judicial Commission nominated Judge Hardin-Tammons along with two other highly qualified individuals on September 8, 2022. Under the Missouri Non-Partisan Court Plan, the Governor has 60 days to make his selection from the three individuals nominated by the Commission. The Governor’s legal team works to assist with judicial evaluations of candidates for both partisan and non-partisan judicial appointments.
According to the Supreme Court of Missouri, there are seven Supreme Court judges, 32 appellate court judges, 147 circuit court judges, and 204 associate circuit court judges in Missouri. According to records maintained at the state archive, during their respective tenures, Governor John Ashcroft made 132 judicial appointments, Governor Mel Carnahan made 117 judicial appointments, and Governor Jay Nixon made 125. Each having made judicial appointments over an eight year-span.
“Our administration has worked diligently to select judges who represent the values of the people of Missouri, who are fair, and who will work hard as public servants,” Governor Parson said. “The rule of law and our system of government rely on a strong and enduring judiciary. We are proud to have now made 100 judicial appointments since taking office – helping to further a legacy of talented legal minds and capable leadership in the state’s judiciary.”

ST. LOUIS – Drivers heading along Interstate 44 in south St. Louis County next Friday, September 30, night may want to consider alternate routes as the Missouri Department of Transportation will close all lanes on the interstate near the Big Bend Bridge.

During the closure, crews will be removing the overhang that allowed them to construct the bridge over I-44 in Kirkwood/Crestwood.

Crews will start closing lanes on eastbound I-44 at 8 p.m. with all eastbound lanes closed by 9 p.m.  Crews will start closing lanes on westbound I-44 about midnight, with all westbound lanes closed by 1 a.m. Saturday, July 30. 

Traffic will be routed up and over the ramps, but drivers can expect much slower travel times through the closure. Drivers on Big Bend are highly encouraged to use alternate routes to get to I-44 during the closure to reduce the impact to through interstate traffic.

Three lanes in each direction of the interstate should reopen by 6 a.m. Saturday.

ST. CHARLES COUNTY – Drivers traveling on the Cave Springs interchange over Interstate 70 will notice lane shifts starting the week of September 26. Crews will begin preparations for the lane conversion Monday, September 26 from 7 p.m. to 5 a.m., weather permitting.

Lanes on northbound and southbound Cave Springs will be narrowed and shifted to the east starting Tuesday night, September 27. A barrier wall will separate traffic from the active work zone. All lanes of Cave Springs will remain open.

In addition to the lane shift, one of the two left turn lanes from eastbound I-70 to northbound Cave Springs will be closed. Motorists will still be able to make a left turn from the remaining open turn lane.

Both the lane shift and the exit lane closure will remain in place until spring 2023. This work is part of construction of the new structure that will take Veterans Memorial Parkway underneath Cave Springs.

The Cave Springs and Zumbehl interchanges are being converted into single point urban interchanges (SPUI) for the I-70 Cave Springs to Fairgrounds Design-Build Project. As construction on this project progresses, both interchanges will remain open to drivers.

SIKESTON – Motorists should anticipate ramp closures at the Interstate 55/57/U.S. Route 60 cloverleaf interchange in Sikeston, Missouri the evening of Monday, Sept. 26. The interchange is located at mile marker 66 in Scott County.
This will conclude the work to apply a high friction surface treatment to the pavement of the interchange. Applying a high friction surface treatment helps motorists maintain better control and makes the overlay much more resistant to wear and polishing.
Work will take place overnight from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. to avoid impacts during peak traffic. Weather permitting, work will begin at 7 p.m. Monday Sept. 26, with completion anticipated at 7 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 27.
Signed detours will be in place, and the work zones will be marked with signs. Motorists are urged to use extreme caution while traveling near the area.

Thu, 09/22/2022 – 09:30

SIKESTON – Missouri Department of Transportation crews will be making driving surface improvements on Route HH in Madison County.  
This section of roadway is located from Route N to County Road 416. 
Weather permitting, work will take place Tuesday, Sept. 27 and Wednesday, Sept. 28 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Open to local traffic only.  
Seal coats are a pavement repair process that is used by MoDOT on roads with lower traffic volumes to maximize available resources and extend the life of the roadway. Hot emulsion oil is sprayed onto the surface of the road, followed by finely ground rocks which are then compacted to adhere to the roadway.  Excess material is swept off the surface, leaving an improved roadway that will hold up longer against the elements.  
The method costs about one third the amount of a traditional asphalt overlay. The treatment keeps water from penetrating the surface, extends the life of the roadway up to seven years, and provides improved traction.  
The work zone will be marked with signs. Motorists are urged to use extreme caution while traveling near the area.

HANNIBAL, MO – Individuals are invited to a public informational meeting that will share information about a future bridge replacement project on Missouri Route 6 in Adair County.  The bridge over the Chariton River, approximately one mile east of Missouri Route 149 near Novinger, will be replaced next year, and the road will have to be closed at the bridge two separate times during the project. The meeting is planned for Thursday, October 6th, from 5:30-7:00 p.m. at the Novinger Fire Station, located at 100 Front St, in Novinger. Details about the project, including a schedule and the closures, will be shared at the meeting through displays and discussions with Missouri Department of Transportation engineers.  The meeting is open-house style, so there is no formal presentation; attendees can come anytime between 5:30 p.m. and 7 p.m.
Included in this project is the removal of the railroad bridge over the abandoned Norfolk Southern Railway on Missouri Route 136, 1.2 miles west of Route 63 in Schuyler County.   Information will be available at the public meeting about this project, as well.
“We encourage individuals to come and learn what will be taking place and ask questions,” said MoDOT Area Engineer Amy Crawford.  She said the new bridge will be 34 feet wide which is 8 feet wider than the existing bridge.
All information available at the public meeting will be made available online on Thursday, October 6.  Should anyone interested in the project require language translation, please call 573-248-2517.
With an increased number of highway work zones in Missouri, it is important all drivers pay attention every second while driving, especially through a work zone.  Be informed of your route by checking the MoDOT Traveler Information Map before you leave to see if you will encounter any work zones.  You can also subscribe to counties, various routes or even projects online at Customer Service Signon (mo.gov).  Be sure you and all your passengers are buckled up, and please put the phone down while driving.

MoDOT Hosts Public Meetings to Reveal Preliminary Design for I-55 Corridor Improvements Project
Visitor (not verified)
Wed, 09/21/2022 – 14:40

JEFFERSON COUNTY – The Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) is hosting two public information meetings to share preliminary designs for I-55 from north of Route Z near Pevely to one mile south of U.S. 67 near Crystal City and Festus.
The first meeting from 4:30-6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 5 will be held at the Festus Public Library, 400 West Main Street, Festus, MO 63028. The public is invited to stop by this open house  at any time and pre-registration is not required. The second meeting will be held via Zoom from 7-8 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 6. Registration is required for the virtual meeting at www.bit.ly/register-i55. Once registered, attendees will receive the Zoom link via email.
MoDOT developed the preliminary designs after a seven-month public engagement process that identified issues requiring attention in this corridor. The same information, including project updates, will be presented at both meetings.
In July 2022, the Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission approved a five-year plan for improving state highways and projects that included $237 million for upgrading I-55 near Pevely to one mile south of U.S. 67 near Crystal City and Festus.
This project will address traffic and safety concerns along the corridor while accounting for future development and growth patterns in the region. The next step in this process involves preliminary design of the recommended alternative, additional study of traffic patterns, safety, roadway conditions, noise analysis, and environmental documentation. MoDOT will continue to seek input and feedback from residents and highway users in the surrounding area.
MoDOT is committed to providing equal access to this event for all participants. If you need a reasonable accommodation, please contact Project Director Justin Wolf at 314-453-5057 by Sept. 28, 2022.
