Project Details

This project will make  improvements to the intersection of MO Route 291 and MO Route 58/Hubach Hill Rd. with the addition of a roundabout. This is the South Junction of MO Route 291 and MO Route 58 just south of the signalized intersection on MO Route 291. Motorists can expect significant delays along MO Rout 58 and MO Route 291 during construction.

This project is scheduled to let in February 2024 with construction beginning in approximately May 2024. It is anticipated that work will be completed by late Fall 2024. This project is expected to cost approximately $3 million.

The Safety Behind Roundabouts

roundabout is a one-way circular intersection that channels traffic around a central island without traffic signals. Roundabouts are a great alternative to a signalized intersection when a high volume of traffic needs to get through with the least amount of inconvenience. While signalized intersections have 20 conflict points, or spots where vehicles could collide, roundabouts reduce that number to eight. Fewer conflict points, combined with slower speeds and calmer traffic, can translate into as much as 75 percent fewer crashes. Because roundabouts tend to have fewer severe crashes than signalized intersections, they have fewer crash-related injuries as well.  Learn more about roundabouts here.
