U.S. 60 between Springfield and Rogersville has needed to be a freeway for many years, and now a project can be developed to build a significant portion of it through Rogersville.

The project will focus on a three-mile long section of four-lane U.S. 60.

Safety is a significant concern driving the project because congestion is increasing. U.S. 60 carries 35,000 vehicles a day through growing eastern Greene and western Webster counties. Rogersville straddles the Greene-Webster county line. Truck traffic accounts for 19-percent of the traffic volume. Studies indicate that the traffic will double within the next 20 years.

The primary purpose of this project will be to improve safety by eliminating at-grade intersections and eliminating the traffic signals at the west junction of Business Route 60 and at Route B/VV. There is adequate funding in MoDOT's Statewide Transportation Improvement Plan to acquire the needed property and construct both points of controlled access in the vicinity of Greene County Farm Road 253 and at Route B/VV.

The project will convert U.S. 60 into a freeway between Greene County Farm Road 241 and west of Chicory Road. It is also believed some outer roadways can be constructed with the funding available.  It is not known which outer roads and other enhancements will be built until the design/construction firm is chosen.

Design-Build is a delivery method that includes hiring one contracting team to complete the design work and build the highway improvement under one contract. MoDOT provides the project goals, budget and schedule. The contractor team completes the work. This technique has saved time and provided cost savings for other projects in Missouri in recent years.

The Design-Build contractor team for the Route 60/Rogersville project will be required to develop innovations in design and in right-of-way acquisition to make the project successful. Those innovations then will be available for use on future projects anywhere in Missouri.

Project Goals:

1. Deliver the project within the programmed budget of $35 million.

2. Convert U.S. 60 into a freeway between County Road 241 on the west and near Chicory Road on the east, providing two points of controlled access to U.S. 60 in the vicinity of Greene County Farm Road 253 and Webster County Route B/VV.

3. Engage stakeholders and the community to develop and deliver the project while minimizing impacts.

4. Impress our customers through innovative traffic control solutions that conveniently, efficiently and safely move drivers through the project during and after construction.

5. Create a new model for purchasing right-of-way on a design-build project.

6. Complete the project by December 2016.
