Route 160-13/Route 14 Intersection
Widening Project Underway in Nixa

Nixa, Christian County – A project to widen the intersection of U.S. Route 160/Missouri Route 13 and Missouri Route 14 (Mount Vernon Street) in Nixa is underway, the Missouri Department of Transportation said. 

The project, a partnership with the city of Nixa, will widen the intersection, adding dual left-turn lanes in all directions and widening Route 14 to four lanes with a center-turn lane between North Estes Street on the west and Fort Street on the east. 

Work has begun to relocate utility lines at all four corners of the intersection.  Once the utility work is complete, contractor crews will begin widening the intersection.  

Here’s a look at the project:

  • Add dual left-turn lanes in each direction at Route 160/13 and Route 14 intersection
  • Widen Route 14 to four lanes with a center turn lane between North Estes Street and Fort Street on either side of Route 160/13
  • Convert West Street entrance to right-in/right-out only at Route 14
  • Rebuild business entrances in areas
  • Build new city street south of Route 14 between West Street and Route 160/13
  • Install new traffic signals at Route 160/13 and Route 14
  • Build new sidewalks
  • Install new storm water drain pipes 

Traffic impacts during construction:

  • Nighttime lane closings at times.  Work hours: 7 p.m. to 6 a.m.
  • Crews and equipment close to traffic
  • Businesses entrances closed one at a time or one-half at a time 

The project is set for completion in the fall. 

The prime contractor is Hartman and Company, Springfield. 

The estimated total cost for the project is $2.76 million. 

The project is partnership between the city of Nixa and MoDOT.
