Groundbreaking Scheduled for New Route 179 Interchange in Jefferson City

JEFFERSON CITY - State and local officials will gather on Monday, July 18 to celebrate the start of construction for a new diamond interchange on Route 179 in Jefferson City.

The new interchange will be located between Route C and Edgewood Drive and will provide access to a new St. Mary's Health Center development. The project is a joint effort of the Missouri Department of Transportation, City of Jefferson, and Cole County.

Emery Sapp and Sons, Inc. of Columbia, Mo. was awarded the $7.4 million contract to complete the work. In addition to the new interchange, a new road called Mission Drive will serve as an access roadway to the new health facility. Construction of Mission Drive is being funded by the City of Jefferson and Cole County.

The groundbreaking will be held along the roadside of northbound Route 179 between Route C and Edgewood Drive. The ceremony will be held rain or shine and is open to the public. Guests should be aware that the terrain at the ceremony location is on a slight incline and may be rough or uneven. To attend the event, MoDOT asks that guests park at the Greenway Trail parking lot on Edgewood Drive and ride a MoDOT shuttle to the ceremony location. If you are in need of special assistance, please contact MoDOT in advance at 1-888-ASK-MODOT (275-6636).
