MoDOT to Hold Public Meeting to Discuss Upcoming Route D Project in Wayne County

SIKESTON-The Missouri Department of Transportation will hold an informational public meeting from 4 to 6 p.m. Monday, July 15 to discuss the relocation of Route D in Wayne County. The meeting will be held at the Bill Emerson Memorial Visitor’s Center, located at 10276 Route T in Wappapello, Missouri.

The project includes relocating Route D as part of the improvements to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Water Control Plan at Lake Wappapello. Improvements to Route D would extend from south of the bridge over the East Fork of Lost Creek to .5 miles south of County Road 524. During the meeting, two alternates will be shared for relocating Route D.

Visitors can stop-by anytime between 4 and 6 p.m. to discuss the details of the project with the MoDOT project team.

“We plan to raise Route D to a minimum elevation of 405 feet,” said Project Manager Tim Pickett. “This will help keep the roadway open during seasonal flooding events.”

The project is expected to be let in early 2021, with construction beginning as early as summer 2021.

For more information, please contact Pickett at (573) 472-9003, Transportation Project Designer Jeff Wachter at (573) 472-5294 or MoDOT's Customer Service Center toll-free at 1-888-ASK MODOT (275-6636).
