Groundbreaking Scheduled for Four-Lane U.S. Route 54 Expressway in Camden and Miller Counties

JEFFERSON CITY - The Missouri Department of Transportation will officially break ground on the construction of a four-lane U.S. Route 54 Expressway in Camden and Miller Counties on Thursday, Oct. 18, 2007. 

The ceremony will be held at 10:30 a.m. off of Bluff Drive (Lake Road 54-22) overlooking existing Route 54.  The public is invited to attend the event, which will be held rain or shine.  Those wishing to attend should take Bluff Drive from U.S. Route 54 for approximately 0.3 miles to the ceremony location.

The first $30 million section of the new expressway includes grading, drainage, paving and retaining wall and bridge construction on a three-mile section from the Grand Glaize Bridge to just east of Route 42.  An interchange will be constructed at Route 42 and at Passover Road. Work on this project will be completed in spring 2010.

McAninch Corporation of Des Moines, Iowa, was awarded the construction contract in September after submitting the lowest bid.

This is the first major section of the new expressway to be constructed with two more sections to follow.  Expressway work is already underway on a separate contract to construct an overpass bridge near Home Depot in Osage Beach.  When completed, the new U.S. Route 54 Expressway will improve safety and minimize congestion through the Lake area.

For more information about this project or other transportation matters, please call 1-888-ASK-MoDOT (275-6636).
