Community Briefing Scheduled for Proposed Safety Improvements to Route 54 in Camden County

JEFFERSON CITY - The Missouri Department of Transportation will hold a second community briefing on Thursday, June 14 to present an update on proposed safety improvements to the Route 54 and Key Largo intersection in Osage Beach. The open-house meeting will be held from 4 p.m. until 6 p.m. at the Osage Beach City Hall, 1000 City Parkway.

MoDOT officials held an initial meeting on April 25 to get feedback on three proposals to improve safety at the intersection.  Based on feedback from that meeting, MoDOT is proposing additional safety improvements to three intersections on Route 54 between Routes KK and Y.  The proposed solution allows traffic to turn right in and right out only at all three intersections. 

"After our community briefing on April 25, we took a number of suggestions into consideration and formulated that input into a plan we believe will improve safety for drivers traveling on and crossing Route 54," said Central District Traffic Engineer Trent Brooks.  "We also looked at how any changes we made to the Key Largo intersection would affect other nearby intersections along the route.  Now we're coming back to the public with a proposed safety solution for the three intersections between Routes KK and Y.  As before, we want to get input from motorists who frequently use those intersections so we can make the best decisions possible."

MoDOT staff will be available during the briefing to receive input and answer any questions. The public may attend the briefing any time during the advertised hours. Displays, handout materials and comment forms from the briefing will be available at www.modot.org/central the following day.

For more information, please contact Brooks at (573) 751-7692 or MoDOT's Customer Service Center toll-free at 1-888-ASK MODOT (275-6636).
