U.S. 54 Intersection Improvements in Cole County

U.S. 54 Intersection Improvements -- Heritage Highway and Buffalo Road

MoDOT will add a new entrance from Heritage Highway, west of its current location. The existing entrance will be right turn in only. The new entrance would allow right and left turns onto U.S. 54, with acceleration lanes.

At Buffalo Road, traffic must turn right using an acceleration lane, and then use a j-turn to turn left.  Vehicles from westbound U.S. 54 can still make a left turn onto Buffalo Road at its current location. Additional acceleration and deceleration lanes will also be added through the area.
