Greene County – Following input received during and after a May public meeting, adjustments have been made to plans for the widening of Route 160 between Springfield and Willard, the Missouri Department of Transportation said.
The most notable change is the removal of a roundabout at the intersection of Route 160 and Greene County Route AB in Willard. Comments provided by residents, drivers and Willard School District officials resulted in a decision by MoDOT engineers to remove the roundabout, but add turn lanes on Route AB approaching Route 160. A new traffic signal also will be installed to replace the existing signal.
The updated intersection map for Route 160 at Greene County Route AB is available on the project website and at Willard City Hall, 224 W. Jackson Street.
