Ribbon Cutting Scheduled for Portion of New U.S. 54 Expressway at the Lake

JEFFERSON CITY - A five mile section of the new U.S. 54 Expressway at the Lake of the Ozarks is nearing completion and a public ribbon cutting is planned. The event will take place on Wednesday, Sept. 29 at 1 p.m. on the new westbound lanes near the Camden/Miller county line. 

The portion of the new expressway nearing completion extends from the Osage River in Miller County to the Grand Glaize Bridge in Camden County.  

"We are very pleased to open this new highway to traffic," said MoDOT Transportation Project Manager Trent Brooks. "The newly relocated highway is designed to improve safety by reducing congestion through the Lake of the Ozarks area."

The project cost approximately $48.7 million to construct. Prime contractors for the various phases include Don Schnieders Excavating of Jefferson City, Mo., McAninch Corporation of Des Moines, Iowa, Bloomsdale Excavating of Jefferson City, Mo., and Emery Sapp and Sons, Inc. of Columbia, Mo.

Work is currently underway to extend the expressway for approximately four miles from the Grand Glaize Bridge to west of Route KK in Camden County. That project is scheduled for completion in late 2011. 

To access the ribbon-cutting ceremony from existing westbound U.S. 54, turn left onto Woodriver Road. Those traveling from existing eastbound U.S. 54 should use the Horseshoe Bend Parkway. A map showing the location of the event can be viewed at modot.org/central.  The ribbon cutting will be held rain or shine.
