Contractors working for the Missouri Department of Transportation will begin improving the intersection of eastbound Route 54 at Key Largo Road in Osage Beach the week of March 17. Grading, paving and drainage enhancements at the intersection will realign the Route 54 Expressway ramps to Osage Beach Parkway. While much of the work will not affect traffic, a 30-day closure of the ramps is planned in the near future as part of the project. All work is expected to be completed before Memorial Day. MoDOT appreciates the patience of travelers during the work.
