Route 65: THE REBUILD - Springfield
Update for Week of October 2, 2017

Thank you for your incredible patience during Route 65: THE REBUILD. The project to rebuild the Route 65 pavement between Sunshine and Kearney Streets will last many years into the future. 

To help us better serve you, please take a few minutes to complete this survey about the project.  

Expect more work on other sections of Route 65 in Springfield in 2018 and 2019. 

The southbound Route 65 bridge over I-44 and sections of the southbound Route 65 pavement between Valley Water Road and Kearney Street will be replaced in 2018.  The project also includes rebuilding the southbound ramps at the Route 65/I-44 interchange and southbound Route 65 to Kearney Street.  The work will require southbound Route 65 to be closed during much of the construction.   

MoDOT continues the planning and design work for rebuilding the Route 65 pavement between Route 60 and Sunshine Street in a project that will be under construction during the summer months 2019.   

When these important projects are completed, Route 65 will be in great shape and will last another 40 to 50 years.
