Commission Awards Improvements to Routes 61 and K in Scott County
New Turn Lanes will Help Reduce Congestion

SIKESTON - The Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission awarded a contract during its regular meeting today for improvements to Routes 61 and K in Scott County.  The $194,670 contract was awarded to Fronabarger Concreters, Inc., Oak Ridge, Mo.

The project includes paving and adding turn lanes.  Improvements will occur at the intersection of Routes 61 and K in Scott City. 

By adding a right turn lane to Route K, it will reduce congestion at the intersection of Route K and the northbound Interstate 55 onramp.  A right/left turn lane will also be added to Route 61, which will help reduce congestion at the intersection of Routes 61 and M. 

Weather permitting, work could begin as early as this summer, with anticipated completion this fall. 

During work, travelers should expect traffic delays.  Delays of up to 15 minutes are possible.  Most work will be completed during the day; however, when necessary, work may also be performed during nights and weekends. 

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

For more information, contact Resident Engineer Darius Dowdy at (573) 243-0899, 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).
