Project Freeway: U.S. 60 Rogersville
Rogersville - The plans to improve U.S. 60 in Rogersville and the timeline for building the improvements will be the focus of a public meeting on August 28, in Rogersville, the Missouri Department of Transportation said.
The come-and-go-style meeting will be held between 4:30 and 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, August 28, at the Logan-Rogersville Upper Elementary School at 306 S. Mill Street (northeast corner of U.S. 60 and Route B) in Rogersville.
MoDOT representatives along with the members of the design consultant/highway contractor team who have designed and will build the project will be on-hand to answer questions. Those attending can view the various improvements that are planned and the timeline for building the improvements.

Project Freeway: U.S. 60 Rogersville has been awarded to the Ozarks Regional Road Constructors (ORRC) group. It is a team made up of six design consultant and highway construction companies who have designed the improvements and will be responsible for building the project. ORRC competed against three other similar teams. The four finalists were scored on their focus on safety, how quickly they could complete the construction of the improvements, the plans for handling traffic during construction and limiting the amount of right-of-way needed to build the project. ORRC received the best overall score out of the four competitors and was awarded the contract the project by the Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission in June.
Project Freeway: U.S. 60 Rogersville is a unique project, because the ORRC team is joining with MoDOT to design and construct the project in a process called Design-Build. Typically, a state roadway project is designed by either MoDOT highway designers or outside engineering firms and then the project is bid out to construction companies. In the Design-Build process, a group of design consulting and highway contractor companies band together to design and build a highway project.
Construction is expected to begin in September with completion in December 2016.
