Commission Awards Contract to Install DMSs and CCTV Cameras on I-55, I-57 and Route 60

SIKESTON - The Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission awarded a contract during its regular meeting today for improvements to Interstate 55, Interstate 57 and Route 60 in Butler, Cape Girardeau, Perry, Pemiscot, Scott, New Madrid and Mississippi Counties.  In addition to these Southeast District counties, the contract also includes Texas and Howell Counties.  The $733,778 contract was awarded to Gerstner Electric Inc., Fenton, Mo.

The project includes installing dynamic message signs (DMSs) and closed circuit TVs (CCTVs) in various locations along I-55, I-57 and Route 60.      

The Southeast District already has several DMSs in use.  These signs are used to provide travelers with real-time, traffic related variable messages. 

However, CCTVs are new to the Southeast District.  The CCTVs will be used to monitor traffic flow during times of congestion and to help manage incidents. 

Weather permitting, work could begin as early as this July.  During installation, traffic will be minimally impacted, with most of the work taking place on the shoulders.  The project is expected to be completed by the end of the year. 

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, please contact Resident Engineer Brian Holt at (573) 472-5325, District Design Engineer Barry Horst at (573) 472-5289 or MoDOT's Customer Service Center toll-free at 1-888-ASK-MODOT (1-888-275-6636).
