NB, SB Route 67 in St. Francois County Reduced for J-Turn Construction

SIKESTON—Northbound and southbound Route 67 in St. Francois County will be reduced to one lane with a 16-foot width restriction as contractor crews construct a j-turn south of Farmington, Missouri.

The project includes reconfiguring the crossover intersection at U.S. 67 and Route H with a j-turn. This requires adding acceleration and deceleration lanes and work in the median.

The work zone will be in place from Route DD to New Perrine Road in Farmington, Missouri. Weather permitting, work will begin Monday, April 18, with completion anticipated Friday, Nov. 11.

The median crossing at U.S. 67 and Route H will be removed with this project. Instead of crossing fast-moving lanes of traffic to get to the opposing lanes, drivers will turn right in the same direction of traffic, merge into the left lane, and then make a u-turn in the direction they intend to travel. For more information on navigating j-turns, please visit www.modot.org/j-turns.

The work zone will be marked with signs. Motorists are urged to use extreme caution while traveling near the area.
