Commission Awards I-57 Mississippi County Improvements

SIKESTON - The Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission awarded a contract during its regular meeting yesterday for improvements to Interstate 57 in Mississippi County.  The $9,272,909 contract was awarded to Iron Mountain Trap Rock Co., Iron Mountain, Mo.

The project includes grading, work on bridge approach slabs and paving in the northbound lanes.  The improvements will extend from west of Ro­­ute 105 to the Mississippi River Bridge near Charleston. 

Weather permitting, work could begin as early as April.  During work, northbound traffic will be shifted to the southbound lanes just south of the Route 62 interchange (Exit 12).  The shift will result in one lane of traffic in each direction.  This portion of the work will take the majority of the construction season.

Also, repairs will be made to the northbound lanes at Exit 8.  Traffic in this section will be diverted to the southbound lanes from about one-fourth mile south of the exit to the on-ramp.  However, this portion of the work will only take four to six weeks to complete and all ramps within the project limits will remain open at all times during the project. 

The project is expected to be completed by this November, weather permitting.   

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.

For more information, contact Resident Engineer Brian Holt at (573) 472-5325, Project Manager Eric Krapf at (573) 472-5261 or MoDOT's Customer Service Center toll-free at 1-888-ASK-MODOT (1-888-275-6636).
