Committee Meets to Discuss Possible Safety Improvements for the Route 54 Corridor in Cole County

COLE COUNTY - The Missouri Department of Transportation will host an advisory committee meeting on Wednesday, June 9, 2010 to discuss possible safety improvements to the U.S. Route 54 corridor in Cole County.

This is the fourth 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 occurring along Route 54.

The purpose of Wednesday's meeting is to give the committee the opportunity to discuss MoDOT's proposed plans for the improvements. Design options for the intersections were presented at the May 6 committee meeting, and MoDOT would like to give the committee another chance to ask questions after having time to consider those options.

"At the last meeting we presented options for the intersections the committee ranked as the top priority," said MoDOT Transportation Project Manager Trent Brooks. "It was a lot of information to absorb, so we'd like to hear from them again about the proposed plans and get their input for our next steps, including how to present the information at a future public meeting."

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.
