To improve safety and provide smoother traffic flow on heavily traveled Route 67 in St. Francois County, a new interchange is being built at Route 67 and Old Orchard Road with several existing median crossings being removed in the area. The project includes grading, drainage, and paving for construction of an outer road and interchange with Old Orchard Road. 

The $7,743,813 contract was awarded in February 2008 to Iron Mountain Construction, Iron Mountain, Mo. The project is anticipated for completion in late summer 2009.
