Commission Awards Contract for Route 25 Improvements in Cape Girardeau County
Project to Reduce Congestion at South Elementary School in Jackson

SIKESTON - The Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission awarded a contract today for improvements to Route 25 in Cape Girardeau County.  The $1,057,031 contract was awarded to Lappe Cement Finishing, Inc., Perryville, Mo. 

The project includes grading and paving from the Jackson Trail to south of Jackson South Elementary School. Traffic signals will also be installed at the Route 25 intersection to help accommodate drivers making left turns.

"This is a good example of folks pulling together to improve transportation for citizens in Jackson," said Project Manager Andy Meyer. "After visiting the school last fall and seeing the congestion issues firsthand, U.S. Representative Jo Ann Emerson secured $650,000 in federal funds to allow the project to move forward."

He also added that all easements necessary for the improvements were donated, and the City of Jackson pro-actively addressed the relocation of city utilities.

In addition to improving Route 25 by adding north and southbound left turn lanes and traffic signals, the school's parking lots will also be reconfigured to include more parking spaces, a wider entrance for improved access and a traffic circle to connect east and south parking areas.

Construction could begin as early as May, with completion anticipated in September.  During work, traffic will be reduced to one lane during the grading and paving work.  Work zones will be flagger controlled. 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 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).
