US 61 Improvements through Palmyra Awarded to Local Contractor

HANNIBAL - The improvement project on US 61 through Palmyra will be built by Chester Bross Construction of Hannibal this summer at a cost slightly more than $1.2 million. Three intersections along US 61 will be improved including those at Ross Street, Main Cross Street and Thompson Street, to make on and off access safer for motorists.

MoDOT sought bids last summer for the project, but only one bid was received and it was considered too high to award. "It was just bad timing for contractors, because they were busy, which is why we decided to hold off and save some money by rebidding the project now," said MoDOT Transportation Project Manager Chris Knapp. "The low bid was more than $250,000 less than it was last year, and we had other contractors bid on the project this time, so we are pleased to move forward," Knapp added.

The project is expected to begin this spring, although a definite date will not be set until MoDOT and Bross hold a pre-construction meeting in the next few weeks.

The improvements to be made can be found online at modot.mo.gov/northeast/marion or follow this link to US 61 Palmyra Improvements. "We expect this to be a significant work zone and will be working with area law enforcement to ensure driver and worker safety," Knapp said.

For more information about this project or other transportation-related issues, please call MoDOT's customer service center at 1-888-275-6636 or email NECR@modot.mo.gov.
