U.S. 54 Expressway

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.
