ST. LOUIS – Delays in getting necessary signal equipment has postponed the completion of a project to add left turn lanes on Route 340 (Olive Boulevard) between Spoede and Old Olive.
The project, started earlier this year, will widen the road between Spoede and Old Olive to lengthen the signalized left turn lanes. The manufacturer has delayed the delivery of the signal posts and the signals, which will postpone the original December 1 completion date.
At this time, the material is scheduled to arrive in mid-December, and weather depending, could be installed by the beginning of 2022.
MoDOT will open as much of the newly constructed roadway as possible that can be safely controlled with the existing equipment. The remainder will open when the new equipment arrives and is installed.

Route B North of Meadville in Linn County to Close

HANNIBAL – The first bridge to be replaced under the FARM (Fixing Access to Rural Missouri) Bridge Program is Route B over Smokey Branch in Linn County, just west of Missouri Route 139 and north of Meadville.  The road will close on Monday, Oct. 25 for construction and will remain closed until the end of February 2022.
“We have 31 weight-restricted, poor condition bridges in northern Missouri to replace under this federally-funded program,” stated Missouri Department of Transportation Project Director Jeff Gander.  Lehman-Wilson was awarded the design-build contract by the Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission at its meeting in May to replace the bridges.  “The MoDOT team has worked closely with the contractor to develop plans for these improvements, and by October 2023, all 31 bridges will be replaced,” Gander noted.
“We understand closing a road can be challenging, yet it’s the best use of our tax dollars, it makes it safer for all the workers, and it speeds up construction,” Gander explained.  There is no posted detour on most of these projects.  The average annual traffic volume on Route B is 190, and the bridge was built in 1954.  All bridges in the program are expected to be closed during construction.
The project will replace deficient bridges on low-volume routes that are:  
Weight-restricted
In poor condition
On timber pile
One-lane but carry two-way traffic
The full list of bridges to be replaced can be found on the FARM Bridge program web page.
Design-build is a project delivery method in which one contracting team is selected to design and build the highway improvement under one contract. MoDOT provides the project goals, budget and schedule and the contractor team completes the work. This technique has been known to significantly save time and provide cost savings.
“Signs will be placed on these roads several days before each closure, and we encourage residents in these areas to sign up to receive our email and text alerts,” Gander said. MoDOT will continue to send information and updates to local media for their distribution. MoDOT’s online traveler map also shows locations of work zones and road closures.
MoDOT’s mission is to provide a world-class transportation system that is safe, innovative, reliable and dedicated to a prosperous Missouri.  Please do your part to help us achieve a safe system by wearing your seat belt every time and putting your phone down while driving…for your safety and our workers.  Take the pledge – Buckle Up, Phone Down.

Wed, 10/13/2021 – 13:10

HANNIBAL – The Keep Your Keys program is a driver-safety course geared toward people 55 and older, caregivers and facilitators, health educators, policy or highway patrol departments, nurses, etc. This program is being offered at the Friedens United Church of Christ, in Warrenton on Wednesday, October 27 at 10:30 a.m. You do not need to register for this event, everyone is welcomed to attend.
The University of Missouri Health Care’s Injury Prevention and Outreach Program provides resources for adults – both individuals and caregivers – who may need support to continue driving or retire from driving. “Drivers age 65 and older are at higher risk for death or disabling injuries due to their body being more susceptible to injury,” said NE Coalition for Roadway Safety Facilitator Marisa Ellison. “We are concerned for everyone who drives on Missouri roads and will continue to work toward reducing fatalities and disabling injuries by supporting educational programs like this one,” she added.
 If interested, please contact Amy Price, Trauma Nurse priceam@health.missouri.edu or Beth Koster, Coordinator of Outreach kosterb@health.missouri.edu or call (573) 884-7143.
There are four main factors that can affect driving as one ages:
Decreased flexibility and strength
Decline in vision and/or hearing
Cognitive issues
Medication interactions
Staying safe on the road
To keep ourselves and our fellow motorists’ safe, it’s essential to self-assess our driving skills on a regular basis.
Ask yourself:
Am I unable to keep up with the flow of traffic?
Do I find myself getting lost or forgetting where I am going?
Do I feel tired when I am driving?
Have I been involved in a crash in the past year?
Have others expressed a concern regarding my driving?
Take our driving self-assessment.
Whether you’re able to ease into driving retirement or it happens unexpectedly, it’s important to create a transportation plan that helps you stay active and social even if you can no longer drive.

Traffic Alert: I-435 MO River Bridge rehab work scheduled for the weekend
Visitor (not verified)
Fri, 10/08/2021 – 16:10

JACKSON/CLAY COUNTIES – The Missouri Department of Transportation will make the following traffic change as part of a two-year bridge rehabilitation project on the I-435 Bridge over the Missouri River.
Crews will close two lanes of southbound I-435 between Front St. and Route 210 from 8pm, Friday, October 8 until 3pm, Saturday, October 9 for deck pour work
 
Closures in this area have the potential for creating significant traffic slowdowns. We encourage motorists to plan ahead.
 
This is all part of a project to replace the bridge deck, reinforce the structural steel and repair the substructure of the aging bridge. The I-435 Bridge over the Missouri River, located just south of Worlds of Fun was built in 1972 and is showing signs of aging and wear. The structure sees about 81,500 vehicles each day. This rehab project is slated to be complete by December 2021.     
Motorists are reminded to slow down and pay attention while driving in work zones. Not all work zones look alike. Work zones can be moving operations, such as striping, patching or mowing. They can also be short term, temporary lane closures to make quick repairs or remove debris from the roadway.

JEFFERSON CITY – The Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission has approved a contract to apply a preventative maintenance surface sealing treatment to Routes 17 and 52 in Miller County.Blevins Asphalt Construction was awarded the contract to seal coat Route 17 between Route 42 and Route 52, and Route 52 between U.S. Route 54 and Route 17. Blevins submitted the low bid for the project at $634,721.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 a 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. Along with a smoother driving surface for travelers, the treatment keeps water from penetrating the surface, extends the life of the roadway up to seven years, and provides improved traction.The work will take place in 2022.When a start date is established for the project, MoDOT will alert the public through signs, news releases and social media.For more information about these projects or other transportation-related matters, please call 1-888-ASK-MoDOT (275-6636) or visit www.modot.org/central.

Missouri ranks 15th in the country for potential vehicle/deer collisions

JEFFERSON CITY — It’s always exciting to see wildlife like deer and coyote when driving through rural Missouri—until they decide to jump into the road in front of your car. The Missouri Department of Transportation reminds motorists to be prepared for the sudden appearance of wild animals on Missouri roadways during the cooler fall months.
“As the days grow shorter, more motorists are driving on dark roads when deer are more active,” said Natalie Roark, state maintenance director. “This leads to a larger number of crashes involving deer and other wildlife from mid-October through the end of November.”
Fall is breeding season and deer are on the move. A report from State Farm Insurance ranks Missouri 15th in the country for potential deer collisions. 
According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, there were 3,639 traffic crashes involving deer in 2020, resulting in 348 injuries and five deaths. Most deer strikes occurred at dawn and dusk in October and November.
Drivers should never swerve to avoid animals in the road as it can cause loss of control of their vehicles, resulting in serious injury or death. To avoid hitting a deer, always be cautious and keep your eyes scanning both sides of the roadway.
“Distracted driving—particularly when wildlife is on the move—can be deadly,” Roark said. “Always buckle up and put your phone down when driving.”
If you can’t avoid a collision and it has resulted in the death of the deer, there are several options you can take:
According to Missouri law, an individual who has struck and killed a deer with their vehicle may claim the deer carcass if written authorization to possess the deer is granted by a Missouri Department of Conservation agent. The Wildlife Dispensation permit is free, but you need to contact the Missouri Department of Conservation to obtain the permit.
Do not jeopardize your safety to remove the animal in a high traffic area. Notify MoDOT at 1-888-ASK-MODOT (275-6636). Crews will address any deer/animal/debris on a highway that is a safety hazard, meaning that the carcass is in the driving or passing lane, or partially in either lane or on the shoulder. Crews will drag the carcass to the outer portion of the right of way, outside any active drainage ditch or channel.
If the deer is completely off the roadway, MoDOT will not pick it up unless it impedes mail delivery or is in a neighborhood, especially at or near a bus stop.
If a deer is located on the shoulder, MoDOT will address the deer during normal work hours. MoDOT crews will not be called out after hours to remove an item, unless it is a safety hazard. MoDOT does not have specialized crews assigned to remove dead animals from the roadway and does not contract out any roadkill removal.
