Motorists Temporarily Not Able to Turn Left Out of Main Cross onto US 61 in Palmyra

HANNIBAL - Now that US 61 improvements are underway in Palmyra, an opportunity to make the work zone safer for both motorists and workers has arisen, and MoDOT and the contractor have responded. "Beginning today, Tuesday, motorists will not be allowed to turn left from Main Cross, heading north onto US 61," said MoDOT Area Engineer Brian Haeffner. "This issue was brought to our attention by local law enforcement as well as the general public, and we quickly looked at various options and determined this option provides the most benefit," Haeffner explained. "We appreciate being notified this was a safety issue, and we appreciate the flexibility of the contractor and the patience of motorists as we make these improvements," he added.

Within the next few weeks, the entire intersection will be closed to finish the improvements in that area. Haeffner said the left turn from Main Cross on to US 61 will be allowed again when the intersection improvements are complete.

For more information about this project or other transportation-related issues, MoDOT customer service is available 24/7 at 1-888-275-6636. Information about this project is online at www.modot.org/northeast.
