The Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission awarded a contract in October 2009. The $1,940,628 contract was awarded to G & M Concrete & Asphalt Co., Inc., Troy, Mo.
The project included widening and resurfacing from Route 84 to Route U, near the City of Caruthersville. Once work to County Road 337 was completed, this section of the roadway became a portion of Route D and is now included in the state highway system.
Work began in spring 2010 with the road being closed to traffic as improvements progressed.
"Now that the project is complete, it has greatly improved access to the Pemiscot County Port Authority," said Project Manager Eric Krapf.
