The project includes Cape Girardeau County acquiring right-of-way for the extension and the Missouri Department of Transportation taking the route into the state system. The extension of Route AB will include grading and paving. In addition, the intersection of Routes 25, 77 and AB will be reconstructed at Blomeyer to include a roundabout.
"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."
