CLAY/JACKSON COUNTIES – The Missouri Department of Transportation will make the following traffic changes as part of the Buck O’Neil/US 169 Missouri River Bridge replacement project. All work is weather dependent.
Crews will close the ramp from eastbound I-70 to 6th/Broadway Blvd. from 9am until 3pm, Tuesday, August 3 surveying work
Crews will close the ramp from Beardsley Rd. to 6th from 9am until 3pm, Tuesday, August 3 for surveying work
 
This is all part of constructing a new Buck O’Neil Bridge that can be reasonably maintained, while providing a safe, connected and accessible transportation facility that improves system performance.   
 
The new Missouri River Bridge will cost close to $220 million dollars to construct and expected to be completed by 2024.
 
The current Buck O’Neil Memorial Bridge is a triple arch bridge carrying U.S. Route 169 over the Missouri River, and serves as a key regional connection between downtown Kansas City and communities north of the river. While safe, the bridge is nearing the end of its projected service life.
 
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.

Shannon, Texas Counties Seal Coat Operation to Impact Traffic on Route JJ
Visitor (not verified)
Thu, 07/29/2021 – 15:30

WILLOW SPRINGS – Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) crews will be making driving surface improvements in Shannon and Texas counties next week.
Starting on Wednesday, August 4 through Friday, August 6, a seal coat treatment will be used to create a smoother driving surface on Route JJ between Route 106 in Texas County at Summersville, Missouri to the end of state maintenance in Shannon County.
Crews will close one lane between 6 a.m. and 9 p.m. each day. Flaggers and a pilot car will be in place to guide traffic through the work area.
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.
Drivers are encouraged to slow down in work zones, obey all traffic signs and give crews on the road plenty of room. Delays are possible and MoDOT says they appreciate the patience of travelers while the work takes place.
Work is weather permitting and could be delayed. For more information about this project or other transportation-related matters, please call 1-888-ASK-MoDOT (275-6636) or visit www.modot.org/southeast. Follow the MoDOT Southeast Missouri District on Facebook or Twitter for project updates.

Commercial motor vehicle awareness campaign to run in August

JEFFERSON CITY – Respect the Load. Share the Road. That’s the message you’ll be seeing across Missouri August 2-22 in a statewide campaign urging drivers to drive safely around large trucks and buses. In turn, commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers will be reminded to obey traffic laws, use their seat belts, slow down and pay attention.
“There were 130 people killed involving a CMV in 2020, with over 80% being drivers or passengers of other vehicles,” said Jon Nelson, MoDOT assistant to the state highway and traffic engineer. “Please don’t risk your life by driving aggressively around big trucks and buses.”
Commercial motor vehicles make up 20% of Missouri’s interstate traffic, carry goods from coast to coast and are a vital part of our nation’s economy. They also provide critical services many Missourians rely on every day. When crashes involving CMVs happen, the disproportionate size of the large truck versus a car means those crashes can often involve serious injuries, or worse. Research shows that in most of these crashes, drivers of passenger cars unnecessarily endanger themselves by not paying attention and driving aggressively around CMVs. That’s why it’s so important for all motorists to drive safely around CMVs. Respect the Load. Share the Road.
The Missouri Coalition for Roadway Safety offers the following tips for driving safely around CMVs.
Don’t cut off large trucks or buses. Make sure you can see both of the truck’s cab lights in your rearview mirror before moving back into your original lane.
Stay out of the “No Zone.” Large trucks and buses have large blind spots on either side and up to 200 feet behind a vehicle. Pass only on the left side. Don’t linger in a blind spot. Do not tailgate large trucks and buses.
Watch your following distance. Keep a safety cushion around large trucks. Can you see the truck’s side mirrors? If not, the driver cannot see you.
Anticipate wide turns. Large trucks and buses need extra turning room.
Be patient. Large trucks and buses accelerate slowly and may use speed limiters.
MoDOT continues to work toward a goal of zero roadway fatalities and urges all who travel in and around the Show-Me State this summer to buckle up, put the cellphone down, slow down and never drive while impaired. Whether driving through a work zone, sharing the road with motorcyclists or cruising around city streets with pedestrians in the area, slowing down and paying attention can help save lives.
For more information on commercial motor vehicle safety and Missouri’s new strategic highway safety plan, Show-Me Zero, and how everyone can participate, visit www.savemolives.com.

All roads lead to the present in Bicentennial Edition Map

All roads lead to the present in Bicentennial Edition Map
Visitor (not verified)
Wed, 07/28/2021 – 13:00

JEFFERSON CITY – The Bicentennial Edition of the Official Missouri Highway Map celebrates 200 years of travel in the Show-Me State. You can pick up your free copy August 12- 22 at the Highway Gardens Expo Center at the Missouri State Fair in Sedalia or contact your local MoDOT district office.
“More than a million people have requested or picked up a printed Missouri highway map over the past two years,” said MoDOT Director of Transportation Planning, Eric Curtit. “We print 1.3 million maps every two years. While many travelers rely on their smartphones or other GPS systems to get around, a lot of people don’t have these options.”
Among other advantages, the paper map allows motorists to plan their route without having to worry about cellphone coverage or data drops, Curtit said.
The Bicentennial Edition souvenir map features a brief history of travel in Missouri, beginning before the state was ratified on August 10, 1821, through frontier days and into the state’s modern era with 33,830 miles of state-maintained routes, 4,800 miles of railroad tracks, 1,380 miles of Interstate highways, 125 public-use airports and 15 public ports.
The map is also great for locating public-use airports, hospitals, colleges and universities, national forests, state parks and conservation areas.
If you can’t make it to the fair, you can order a state map by calling 1-888-ASK-MODOT (275-6636) or request a map online at modot.org/official-state-highway-map.
Interesting facts about the map
There are more than 4,000 highway shields and 1,500 towns shown on the front of the current map.  More than 60 separate features are shown in this new map.
Data sources for the map’s many features include the Missouri Department of Transportation, several Missouri state departments and various other agencies, including: U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the USGS National Map, Environmental Sciences Research Institute and the Missouri Spatial Data Information Service.

Flashing Yellow Arrow to Ease Traffic Flow

SIKESTON—Flashing yellow arrows will be installed at the intersection of U.S. Route 61 and Cape Rock Drive/Kiwanis Drive in Cape Girardeau, Missouri.
“The Missouri Department of Transportation analyzed traffic in this area, and the addition of flashing yellow arrows will help increase efficiency,” said MoDOT Traffic Studies Specialist Grant Bowers. “The new signals will signify that drivers turning left should yield to oncoming traffic.”
The signals will also display a solid green arrow when left turning traffic has the right of way. A solid yellow arrow will indicate drivers should prepare to stop or complete the turn if in the intersection.
“By using the flashing yellow arrow, traffic on Kiwanis Drive will have more opportunities to turn left,” said Bowers.
The new signals will be activated the night of Monday, Aug. 9, weather permitting.
For more information, please contact Bowers at (573) 380-3859, District Traffic Engineer Craig Compas at (573) 472-5310 or MoDOT’s Customer Service Center toll-free at 1-888-ASK-MoDOT (275-6636). A video of signals with flashing yellow arrows is also available at: https://youtu.be/H6-hcgWt7co.

MoDOT Accepts Public Input on Planned Improvements

SIKESTON—The Missouri Department of Transportation will hold a virtual public hearing to discuss a proposed project to upgrade U.S. Route 67 in Butler County to four lanes in preparation for Future I-57.  
The virtual public hearing will be held Tuesday, Aug. 3 from 4 to 6 p.m., with formal presentations beginning at 4 p.m. and 5 p.m. The same presentation will be delivered at both 4 and 5 p.m. to provide attendees with multiple opportunities to join the discussion. Throughout the online hearing, there will opportunities for attendees to ask questions or share comments. Attendees can join the virtual public meeting on Aug. 3 by visiting www.modot.org/futureI57. 
The proposed project includes upgrading Route 67 to interstate standards from the Route 160/158 interchange south of Poplar Bluff, Missouri to the Missouri/Arkansas state line. The entire project limits are broken down into five phases: Phases 1A and 1B, as well as Phases 2-4.
Phases 1A, 1B and 2 are funded and will be the focus of the public hearing. Phase 1A received funding through Governor Mike Parson’s cost share program. Phases 1B and 2 were funded thanks to a cost share between MoDOT and the City of Poplar Bluff. This was made possible after Poplar Bluff voters approved a ballot measure led by the Highway 67 Corporation to help fund the expansion in August 2019.
Improvements will extend from the Route 160/158 interchange to County Road 352 through the currently funded phases. The Route 160/158 interchange will be reconfigured with two roundabouts in place of the current loop ramps in the northwest and southeast quadrants.
Funding is not yet secured for Phases 3 and 4; schedules will be determined as funding becomes available.
Interested persons may review the project in more detail and share their thoughts at www.modot.org/futureI57. Individuals interested in attending the virtual public hearing may visit www.modot.org/futureI57 to join on Aug. 3.
Comments will be accepted through Tuesday, August 24, 2021.
