Commission Awards Contract for Roundabout Project Near Blomeyer

SIKESTON - The Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission awarded a contract during its regular meeting today for improvements to the intersection of Routes 25, 77 and the future Route AB near Blomeyer in Cape Girardeau County.  The $1,167,864 contract was awarded to Fronabarger Concreters, Inc., Oak Ridge, Mo. 

The project includes grading and paving to construct a roundabout. 

"The roundabout will simplify this intersection by giving drivers smoother transitions to the entrances and exits," said Project Manager Andy Meyer. 

This one-lane roundabout will require drivers to yield to one-way traffic before entering.  Once drivers enter the roundabout, they will round the loop until they reach the appropriate exit. 

"Roundabouts help reduce the number of conflict points, or spots where vehicles could collide," said Meyer.

Work to construct the roundabout could begin as early as March 2010.  Once improvements are underway, Route 77 could be closed during certain stages of the project.  However, the closure of Route 77 cannot occur until May 2010, and the contractor cannot close the route for more than 45 days during construction. 

Route 25 will remain open at all times. The project is expected to be completed 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, please contact Project Manager Andy Meyer at (573) 472-5296, Resident Engineer Darius Dowdy at (573) 243-0899 or MoDOT's Customer Service Center toll-free at 1-888-ASK-MODOT (1-888-275-6636).
