Advisory Committee Meets to Discuss Safety Improvements for U.S. Route 54 in Cole County

COLE COUNTY - The Missouri Department of Transportation will host an advisory committee meeting on Thursday, May 6, 2010 to discuss possible safety improvements to the U.S. Route 54 corridor in Cole County.

This is the third meeting of the committee, which is comprised of local law enforcement, emergency response, school districts, public works officials, area residents and business owners. The committee's task is to provide input to MoDOT to help determine what types of safety improvements would decrease the number of severe and fatal crashes along Route 54.

The purpose of Thursday's meeting is to review design options for intersections the committee recommended as priorities for reducing crashes.

"Our goal is to improve safety along the entire corridor as a whole by trying to reduce the crashes that occur when motorists enter or exit the highway," said MoDOT Transportation Project Manager Trent Brooks. "At Thursday's meeting we'll show the committee some ideas we have to improve safety at the busiest intersections along the corridor."

The advisory committee is meeting at 1 p.m. at the Cole County Fire Station 4, 5206 Monticello Road. Interested members of the public may attend and observe the meeting. Any questions or comments from the general public will be addressed following the meeting. Accessibility accommodations will be available.
