Commission Awards Contract for Economic Recovery Project in Cape Girardeau County to Improve Route W

SIKESTON - The Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission awarded a contract during its regular meeting today for improvements Route W in Cape Girardeau County.  The $2,348,089 contract was awarded to Apex Paving Co., Cape Girardeau, Mo.  Funding for this project was received through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. 

Improvements will extend from Lexington Ave. to the new LaSalle Ave.  The project will include resurfacing, shoulder improvements, adding centerline and edge line rumble strips, improving the intersections at County Road 620 and Perryville Road, and improving drainage structures.

To improve drainage structures, the box culvert located three-tenths a mile south of County Road 618, will be replaced. Also, the box culvert located near the County Road 620 intersection on Cape Lacroix Creek, will be extended. Extending this culvert will allow the roadway to be widened.

Work may begin as early as November 2009, weather permitting, and the project is anticipated to be completed in winter 2010.   

As the culvert near County Road 618 is being replaced, it will be necessary to close the road for approximately two weeks. As work is performed to extend the culvert near County Road 620, the road will be closed for approximately two weeks. However, the closures will not occur at the same time. 

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 Andy Meyer at (573) 472-5296 or MoDOT's Customer Service Center toll-free at 1-888-ASK-MODOT (1-888-275-6636).
