Public Invited to Learn About Routes B/E and US 61 Intersection Improvements

HANNIBAL – The Missouri Department of Department is hosting an informational meeting on Tuesday, August 2 from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at the Lincoln County Ambulance District located at 101 Highway E, just east of U.S. 61 at the Routes B/E intersection.  “The purpose of the meeting is to introduce the improvements that will be made next year at this intersection,” said MoDOT Area Engineer Erik Maninga.  This is an open-house style meeting, so those interested can come anytime between those hours.  Displays will be there showing the improvement, as well as several MoDOT engineers to visit with attendees.

“This intersection has the highest number of fatalities in our district, so we are utilizing about one million dollars of safety funds to build a j-turn,” Maninga explained.  “Missouri currently has 19 J-turn intersections, and they are proven to provide safer access on busy highways like U.S. 61,” he added.

MoDOT is primarily focused on maintaining Missouri’s network of roads and bridges in the condition they are today.  “Missouri has a long-term, insufficient funding challenge; to deliver other improvements requires additional investment beyond the current level,” Maninga went on to explain.

Information about various j-turn designs, as well as other intersections in Missouri, can be found online at http://www.modot.org/general/J-Turns.htm.  For more information, please call Marisa Ellison, communications manager at MoDOT, 573-248-2502.
