MoDOT Seeking Comments to Improvements Along US 61 in Palmyra
Public Meeting to Be Held in Palmyra

HANNIBAL - MoDOT will make recommendations for improvements along US 61 through Palmyra at a public meeting to be held Tuesday, February 15 from 4:30 until 6:30 p.m. at Palmyra State Bank. A presentation outlining these recommendations will be given by MoDOT Northeast District Engineer Paula Gough, P.E. at 5:15 p.m. The public is invited to comment on the recommendations, either at the meeting, by mail or online.

MoDOT has already performed a safety audit along the corridor, assessing the median crossovers and access points, as well as traffic patterns. Interactive displays, video and other exhibits will be available for viewing at the public meeting, as well as online at modot.org/northeast starting February 15.

MoDOT has worked with the City over the last several years to make improvements on this highway, known as Avenue of the Saints, a four-lane highway from St. Louis to St. Paul. "Since US 61 is now four lanes through Missouri and runs about 30% commercial traffic, it's time to evaluate the effectiveness of the improvements made nearly four years ago," Gough said. Those improvements included reduced speed signs, and acceleration and deceleration lanes, as well as widening of one median crossover.

For more information about this project and other transportation issues, please contact MoDOT's Customer Service Center during normal business hours at 1-888-ASK MODOT (275-6636) or visit our website at www.modot.org/northeast.
