Project Status: Interchange open to traffic.


Why is MoDOT doing this project?

When improvement options were considered, MoDOT chose those that reflect the context of the community’s needs, future development, and changing land use.

How does this project benefit me?

The interchange at Routes 71 and 150 is being reconstructed as a single-point, urban interchange to accommodate increased traffic, and to provide better flow of vehicles exiting from Route 71 and turning left onto Route 150.

Route 150 will be widened and include separate turn lanes. The ramps will be widened, allowing for multiple turn lanes. Also included will be new bridges carrying the east and west outer roads over Route 150. White Avenue will be extended to the East Outer Road.

What is the project time line?

Deck work is under way on the east outer road bridge following beam placement in early August. Both northbound and southbound Route 71 are back to 3 lanes in each direction. Paving of Route 150 under Route 71 continues through August. Ramps on the north side will open this fall. Work on all facets of the project will conclude late this winter.

How is this project funded?

The projects total more than $68 million, including $29.6 million for the interchange, $34.3 million for three widening projects and the remainder for utility relocation.
