Route 45 is a critical east/west route and traffic is expected to increase substantially by the year 2030. These improvements will accommodate development, and most important, improve traffic safety. It will also create a safe, efficient, environmentally sound, and economical transportation facility that meets the needs of the area.

 

Project Update: 10/20/17: On Brightwell Rd., the new approach has started being paved and temporary streets lights have been placed at the entrance. In order to complete the remaining portion of the new entrance into the neighborhood, the existing road will be reduced to one lane and the temporary traffic light will work as a traffic flagger at all times. This will last several weeks.

Regarding Nevada Rd., the new approach from Route 45 has been paved. The portion of pavement connecting the new approach to the existing road will be poured soon.

The new approach from Timber Ridge onto Route 45 has been laid out. Tosuccessfully pave the new approach, the entrance at Timber Ridge will drop down to one lane traffic for a few weeks.

Project Update: 10/18/17: Curb and gutter along the median has been installed from the round-about at Brink Myers Rd. all the way to the Nevada/Timber Ridge intersection.

What is MoDOT doing and how will this benefit me?

MoDOT will continue to widen Route 45 to four lanes from I-435 to Route K. This project will also include retaining walls along the road, adding a roundabout, and building a trail that begins at Route K and ends at Brink Myers Road. The goal is to increase capacity for more vehicles, improve intersection safety and increase driver sight distance by flattening the hills.

Recent Activity:

Phase 2 of the project has begun and Phase 1 will be subsequent to Phase 2 beginning in the spring of 2017. Phase 3 is expected to begin in later summer of 2017.

Back on Monday, Oct. 24, 2016, the final phase of the Route 45 widening project kicked off with a ground breaking ceremony.

Overview of Project Phasing:

  • Phase 1 - Construction of the round-about at Brink Myers Road and removal and replacement of roadway between Brink Myers Road and Brightwell Road. (7 to 9 months)
  • Phase 2 - Removal and replacement of roadway between Brightwell Road and the Nevada-Timber Ridge Intersection (3 to 5 months)
  • Phase 3 - Removal and replacement of roadway between Nevada-Timber Ridge Intersection and Route K. (3 to 5 months)

Maintenance of Traffic:

MO-45 will be closed to through traffic during phases 2 and 3. Motorists will be detoured using I-435, Route 152 and Route K. Local traffic will be allowed to access their property using reduced speed limits and caution. This will allow all residents to enter and exit their properties and not jeopardize worker safety.

Completion Date:

  • December 1, 2017
