What are the issues?

There are improvements that need to be made on Route 61/67 in Jefferson County from approximately Brandon Wallace Way to 6th/8th Street in Crystal City. To maintain our roadway and continue to keep motorists safe, MoDOT plans to add a two-way left turn lane, address existing drainage issues and resurface the pavement in the area. The existing curbs, pipes and inlets have outlived their intended functions. Curbs will be updated; drainage pipes will be replaced where needed and inlets and drains will be cleaned out. The installation of a two-way left turn lane will provide safer left turn access to the businesses along this section of Route 61/67 in Crystal City.
