Recent Safety Audit Prompts New Signs on Route 54

CAMDEN/MILLER COUNTIES – Larger “Wrong Way” and “Do Not Enter” signs will be installed on Route 54 in Camden and Miller counties beginning today as part of an effort to prevent wrong-way traffic crashes.

The Missouri Department of Transportation is placing the new signs as a result of a road safety audit conducted last year on the 100-mile stretch of Route 54 from Camdenton to Mexico. Guard cable and high friction surface treatment on several curves will also be installed on Route 54 as part of the audit’s recommendations.

While the audit found the existing conditions on the Route 54 corridor to meet all state and federal standards, MoDOT is implementing the additional safety enhancements in an effort to further reduce incidents.

Crews will begin removing old signs and placing new ones at the Route 54 and Route AA intersection today, and will work westward through Miller and Camden counties. The work will take place during daytime hours, from 6 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The installation is scheduled to be finished in September.

Most of the work will take place in the highway median, but there will be times when the median crossover will have to be closed to replace the signs. When that happens, traffic will be detoured to the next crossover.

Message boards ahead of the work zones will warn motorists of lane or median crossover closures. MoDOT appreciates the patience of travelers during the work.
