Commission Awards Economic Recovery Project for Improvements to Interstate 55 in Pemiscot County

SIKESTON - The Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission awarded a contract during its regular meeting today for improvements to Interstate 55 in Pemiscot County.  The $16,085,635 contract was awarded to Chester Bross Construction Co./C.B Equipment Inc., Hannibal, Mo.  Funding for this project was received through the passage of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. 

"We are pleased that this project met the criteria to be included in MoDOT's economic recovery project list," said Transportation Project Designer David Blalock. "Without funding from the act, this project would have remained an unfunded need." 

The project includes resurfacing in the northbound lanes from the Arkansas state line to north of Route U.  The Route 84 northbound off-ramp will also be included in the project. 

Weather permitting, work on the project is expected to begin this July.   

As improvements are being made, northbound and southbound traffic will be shifted to utilize the southbound lanes only. 

The project is expected to be complete by fall 2010. 

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