Improvements to West Ely Road and Pleasant Intersections in Hannibal to Begin this Summer

HANNIBAL - The improvements to West Ely Road and Pleasant Street at the intersection of US 61 in Hannibal was awarded to Chester Bross Construction Co. of Hannibal at a cost of $1,073,230.64. A start date for construction will be established in mid-June. The project is scheduled to be completed by October 15, 2012.

The improvements include adding a right turn lane on Pleasant Street, a left turn lane on West Ely, resurfacing the entire intersection, and new curb and gutter along US 61.  Existing sidewalks will be replaced and a new sidewalk will be added from the corner of Pleasant Street along the east side of US 61 to the wide shoulder across from the Steamboat Bend Shopping Center main entrance.  In addition, pedestrian cross walks and signals will be installed to increase the safety of pedestrian traffic at the intersection.

The City of Hannibal and MoDOT partnered to make the needed improvements to the intersection. MoDOT sought bids last fall and in the spring for the project. However, last fall no bids were received due to contractors having a full work load and it being too late in the season to begin the project; the bids last spring were considered excessive and were rejected. During the final letting, lengthened closure times and more flexible traffic control were incorporated into the project.

The initial work will include lane closures on US 61 with both the West Ely Road and Pleasant Street approaches to US 61 being closed for 60 days and the signals on US 61 will be on green allowing north and southbound traffic to proceed uninterrupted until the project is completed. Signs and message boards will be posted to notify motorists of the closures on West Ely and Pleasant. During the 60 day closure of West Ely and Pleasant through traffic will not be allowed to use the Steamboat Bend Shopping Center as a detour. City police will patrol the area during this time to help with compliance.

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.
