Upcoming Public Meeting to Discuss Intersection Improvements on Route 67 in Farmington
Attend Online Now!

SIKESTON—The City of Farmington and the Missouri Department of Transportation will hold an informational public meeting from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 27 to discuss intersection improvements in Farmington, Mo. The meeting will be held at the Farmington Regional Library, located at 101 North A St.

"Visitors can stop-by anytime between 6 and 8 p.m. to discuss the details of the project with city officials and the MoDOT project team,” said MoDOT Project Manager Jason Williams.

The project includes reconfiguring the Route 67 median crossover at New Perrine Road with a j-turn design and removing the median crossover at Doubet Road.

"Traditional median intersections have approximately 42 conflict points. J-turns decrease the number of conflict points and help reduce the severity of crashes at the intersection," said Williams.

Instead of motorists crossing fast-moving lanes of traffic to get to the opposing lanes, drivers at j-turn intersections turn right in the same direction of traffic, merge into the left lane, and then make a u-turn in the direction they intend to travel.

Construction is expected to begin in summer 2018, with completion anticipated in fall 2018. As work is underway, motorists should expect periodic single lane closures on Route 67 and a temporary closure of the existing median crossing at New Perrine Road while work is underway to remove and replace the pavement in the median. The Doubet Road median crossing (north of New Perrine) will be removed with this project.

For more information, please contact Williams at (573) 472-5290, Area Engineer Brian Okenfuss at (573) 431-4933, Transportation Project Designer Jeff Wachter at (573) 472-5294 or MoDOT's Customer Service Center toll-free at 1-888-ASK MODOT (275-6636).
