Commission Awards Contract for I-55 Welcome Centers near Hayti and Marston

SIKESTON - The Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission awarded a contract today for improvements to Interstate 55 in New Madrid and Pemiscot Counties.  The $11,629,285 contract was awarded to R.L. Persons Construction Inc., Poplar Bluff, Mo.

The project includes constructing two Welcome Centers. One of the Welcome Centers will be located on northbound I-55 north of Hayti, and the other will replace the southbound rest area near Marston.  Constructing these facilities will include grading, paving, drainage work, lighting, landscaping and signing. 

"Both locations will feature restroom facilities, picnic areas, a playground, benches and walking trails as well as site specific details, highlighting the rich history of southeast Missouri," said Resident Engineer Brian Holt. 

Work on both of the centers is expected to begin in August.  During construction, outer road traffic will be impacted at the new Hayti Welcome Center as the new outer road is constructed to meet the existing outer road.  Other minimal impacts will occur as on and off ramps are constructed at both centers.  

Construction of both Welcome Centers is expected to be complete by November 2010, weather permitting. 

For more information about the Marston or Hayti Welcome Centers, please contact Project Manager Tim Richmond at (573) 472-5290 or District Design Engineer Barry Horst at (573) 472-5289, respectively, 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).
