After public feedback, the Missouri Department of Transportation has decided on a plan for a new interchange at U.S. 60 and Highway 125 near Rogersville.
According to MODOT, the interchange will be built approximately a third of a mile east of the existing intersection.
The interchange is needed to improve safety along Route 60, MODOT said in a news release. The project will remove the traffic signal, which has been the scene of many crashes—one fatal. And MODOT officials expect congestion along Route 60 during higher traffic volume times to be reduced.
Construction will take place in 2022 and 2023. The estimated total project cost is $22 million.
