CORRECTION: Signal Work Planned In St. Joseph Next Week
Drivers may wish to use an alternate route

ST. JOSEPH, Mo. – The intersection of U.S. Route 59 (6th Street) and Atchison Street in St. Joseph will be a bit safer after some planned work next week. There are signal heads at that location which attach to the overpass. Currently they can twist in the wind, making them less visible to motorists navigating the intersection. Local crews from the Missouri Department of Transportation plan to change the hardware on the signals next week so they can still sway in the wind, but will not twist, keeping them in view of motorists.

Beginning at approximately 9 a.m. Tuesday, April 25, until approximately 11:30 a.m., crews will close one lane at a time in each direction to allow them to change the hardware. During the work, a flagger will direct traffic through the intersection. Motorists may want to plan an alternate route during the work as there will be delays.

Larger vehicles will not be able to turn north from Atchison Street onto 6th Street. Any larger vehicles should turn south from Atchison Street onto 6th Street, find a safe place to turn around, then head north on 6th Street to continue their route.

In addition, vehicles coming off southbound Interstate 229 to go north on 6th Street should plan to go south, past the intersection, find a safe place to turn around, then head north on 6th Street.

All work is weather permitting and schedules are subject to change. MoDOT encourages all travelers to slow down, buckle up, eliminate distractions, pay attention and drive safely so everyone is able to Arrive Alive.
