The Missouri Department of Transportation is proposing to widen Route 5 to three lanes through Sunrise Beach. The project would extend from Singing Oaks Drive to Jet Ski Drive. The project is a cooperative effort between MoDOT and the Village of Sunrise Beach.
The Missouri Department of Transportation has built a new four-lane highway through the Lake of the Ozarks called the U.S. 54 Expressway, which extends from Business Route 54 in Miller County to Route KK in Camden County.
The first phase, from Business Route 54 to the Grand Glaize Bridge, was completed in fall 2010. The second phase, from the Grand Glaize Bridge to Route KK, is nearing completion.
The new expressway will improve safety and traffic flow through the lake area. Work included grading, drainage, bridges, retaining walls, paving, and utilities. Six interchanges provide access between existing U.S. 54, now known as Osage Beach Parkway, and the new expressway.
Grading work for 2.25 miles from the Grand Glaize Bridge to just east of Nichols Road and 1.5 miles from west of Route KK to the existing highway east of Route Y; bridge construction at Jefferies Road and Case Road; service roadway construction at various locations.
Contractor: Dave Kolb Grading, Inc. of St. Charles, Mo.
The Missouri Department of Transportation
is building a new Route 5 Hurricane Deck Bridge in Camden County. The new bridge will be located on the east side of the existing structure, which is located south of Sunrise Beach.
American Bridge Company of Overland Park, Kansas, was awarded the construction contract after submitting the low bid of $32,303,295.46 to build an entirely new structure.
The new bridge will be wider to include two 12 foot driving lanes with seven foot shoulders on each side. Construction began on May 4, 2012, and the new bridge will be completed in late 2013. The entire project, including demolition of the existing structure, will be completed in spring 2014.
The existing bridge will remain open to traffic during construction of the new structure. However, some occasional lane closures on Route 5 and across the existing bridge should be expected.

Route 5 in Camden and Laclede Counties - Shared Four-LaneHighway
MoDOT is building a "shared four-lane" highway in Camden and Laclede counties to improve safety and traffic flow. This innovative highway design provides 18 miles of continuous, alternating passing lanes between Camdenton and Lebanon, allowing motorists to pass other vehicles without driving in opposing traffic lanes.
Location: From just north of Route 7 near Camdenton to Greenfield Road in Lebanon.
This was the largest grading project in MoDOT history, requiring the excavation of more than seven million cubic yards of soil and rock. The grading work was part of the realignment of nearly seven miles of Route 5, from south of the Niangua Bridge to near Route 7. The realignment also included extensive drainage work and the construction of two interchanges and four bridges.
Location: 1.1 miles north of Lake Road 5-84 to 0.13 miles north of Lake Road 5-112.
