Commission Awards Contract for Route AB Extension in Cape Girardeau County

SIKESTON - The Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission awarded a contract during its regular meeting Jan. 12 for improvements to Route AB in Cape Girardeau County.  The $2,551,804 contract was awarded to Emery Sapp & Sons Inc., Columbia, Mo.  Cape Girardeau County acquired the right-of-way for the extension of Route AB.

The project includes grading and paving along the Route AB extension.

"The improvements will directly connect Route 25 and Interstate 55," said Project Manager Andy Meyer. "This project will also improve safety at this Blomeyer intersection."

Construction is expected to begin in summer 2011, with completion anticipated by the end of the year.

As work is underway, traffic impacts will be minimal.  However, access to county roads that cross Route AB will be restricted at times. Additionally, drivers should expect delays as the contractor works to tie the new pavement into the existing pavement. 

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 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).
