Public Meeting to Show Range of Alternatives for Future Rex Whitton Expressway

Jefferson City - Jefferson City, Cole County and MoDOT are hosting a public meeting to gather community input on the reasonable range of alternatives to improve the Rex Whitton Expressway/US Route 50/63 and connectivity to the Missouri State Penitentiary redevelopment site.

The open house meeting will be held from 4:30 to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, January 29, at Kertz Hall at Immaculate Conception Church, 1206 East McCarty Street. The public may attend the meeting at anytime during the advertised hours. The meeting site is accessible to individuals with disabilities.

Along with the reasonable range of alternatives, the meeting will include exhibits and information on the study process and project, as well as project goals. Study team members will be on hand to discuss the alternatives, take comments and answer questions.

"This meeting is an important opportunity for everyone to see the reasonable range of alternatives, and provide their thoughts and suggestions. We were very pleased to have a great deal of thoughtful public input at our meeting last August, and this is a continuation of that process," said MoDOT District Planning Manager, Michael Dusenberg.

"We know that there will be some challenges and difficult trade-offs.  We need to hear from the community so that a final recommendation can be developed that responds to the community's needs and interests. Public input now is very important."

The study area includes the U.S. Route 50/63, known as the Rex Whitton Expressway, from just east of the U.S. Route 54/63 tri-level interchange, east through Jefferson City to the Eastland Drive interchange. The study area extends to McCarty Street on the north and approximately Dunklin Street on the south.
