Displays from the hearings detailed the environmental study process, traffic data, historic preservation, economic development data, and the preferred alternative for the study.

Station 1: General Information
Station 2: Screening to the Preferred Alternative
Station 3: Close-up Views of Preferred Alternative Through Communities Along Route 63
Station 4: Topographical Maps of the Preferred Alternative
Station 5: Traffic Access Points - While no decisions have been made on how the Preferred Alternative would connect to existing state and county routes, here are some ideas the study team is considering:
Station 6: Historic Preservation
Station 7: Economic Status of Route 63 Communities
Station 8: Representation of Route 63 Widened To Five Lanes — MoDOT considered widening Route 63 through the existing communities at one point during the study. While widening Route 63 through Westphalia is not part of the preferred alternative, Vichy is. These maps illustrate the impact widening would have on these communities.
