Commission Awards Contract for First Phase of Interchange Project in Poplar Bluff
Interchange to Provide Access Between Route 67, Oak Grove Road

SIKESTON - The Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission awarded a contract during its regular meeting on April 3 for the first phase of the Oak Grove Road interchange in Poplar Bluff. The interchange will provide full access between Route 67 and Oak Grove Road. The $5,566,006 contract was awarded to RL Persons Construction Inc., Poplar Bluff, Mo.

This phase of the interchange project will include constructing the interchange ramps. The second phase will consist of constructing an overpass bridge, which will be constructed adjacent to the existing bridge. The second phase is expected to be let in March 2013.

The project will be completed as part of an economic development program agreement between MoDOT and the City of Poplar Bluff. In addition to construction of the interchange, MoDOT's portion of the project will include geometric and traffic signal improvements at the intersection of Oak Grove Road and Westwood Boulevard. The intersection project is expected to be let in September 2012.

The City of Poplar Bluff's portion of the project will include adding lanes to Oak Grove Road between Route 67 and Westwood Boulevard.

Improvements could begin as early as May 2012, with completion in late 2013, weather permitting. Oak Grove Road will be closed this summer, when school is not in session, to minimize inconveniences.

Work zones will be marked with signs as improvements are 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 Tim Richmond at (573) 472-5290, Resident Engineer Audie Pulliam at (573) 840-9781, Transportation Project Designer Jeff Wachter at (573) 472-5294 or MoDOT's Customer Service Center toll-free at 1-888-ASK MODOT (275-6636).
