Commission Awards I-55 Improvements in New Madrid and Pemiscot Counties

SIKESTON - The Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission awarded a contract during its regular meeting today for improvements to Interstate 55 in New Madrid and Pemiscot counties.  The $280,790 contract was awarded to Gerstner Electric Inc., Fenton, Mo.

The project includes installing interchange lighting along I-55 at Route 62 by New Madrid (Exit 44), Route EE by Marston (Exit 40) and Route 164 near Steele (Exit 8). 

This project is part of an overall program to provide lighting at every interchange along I-55 in Southeast Missouri. 

"The idea is to provide better visibility at the interchanges," said District Design Engineer Barry Horst, "leading to safer entries and exits on I-55."

Work to add the interchange lighting is expected to begin this spring.  During construction, there will be occasional lane closures along I-55.  However, the duration of the closures will be short to minimize inconveniences to travelers. 

Work zones will be marked with signs as the improvements are being made.   Drivers are urged to use extreme caution near the work zones and plan for possible delays.  MoDOT will alert drivers prior to any change in traffic. 

The project is expected to be completed by next fall. 

For more information, contact Horst at (573)-472-5289 or MoDOT's Customer Service Center toll-free at 1-888-ASK-MODOT (1-888-275-6636).
