Nodaway County U.S. Route 71 intersection improvements complete

St. Joseph, Mo. – Intersection improvements on Nodaway County U.S. Route 71 are now complete. The improvements began in the summer of 2020 as part of the expansion to the Northwest Missouri State University’s Wright Farm facility. Crews hired by the university, working through a permit issued by the Missouri Department of Transportation, were able to complete the project today, removing temporary traffic signals and restoring access to Icon Road.
