(Young Women in Engineering/Missouri State University)
Work is progressing to make U.S. 60 a freeway through Rogersville. The work is concentrated on building an interchange at Route 60 at Routes B/VV and preliminary work is taking place on the interchange at Route 60 and Greene County Farm Road 253.
The project which runs between Greene County Farm Road 241 west of Rogersville and Peck Hollow Road east of Rogersville will make Route 60 a safer roadway with improved connectivity for the Rogersville community. It also is another step toward eliminating all "at-grade" intersections along Route 60 between Springfield and Rogersville, a long term goal of MoDOT and communities along the corridor.
