The Exit 93 interchange that connects southbound traffic on Kingshighway to Interstate 55 or Route 74 could benefit from reconfiguration. The bridge in this location, referred to as a “flyover,” is in poor condition. The flyover was constructed in 1961 and now carries more than 6,000 cars a day. The flyover is in need of replacement soon.
MoDOT has discussed this need with the City of Cape Girardeau and the Southeast Metropolitan Planning Organization. Together, we have explored the long-term future of the interchange and what additional improvements could be made in regard to reconfiguration. In addition, MoDOT has also heard from many area businesses.
Funding is not currently secured for an extensive reconfiguration project at Exit 93.
