More Improvements Planned on Northern Corridor of U.S. 67

SIKESTON, MO - The Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission today awarded a contract to move the U.S. 67 four-lane project closer to completion.  The $9,897,956 contract was awarded to Robertson Contractors of Poplar Bluff.

The project includes construction of a four-lane Wappapello Lake/St. Francis River Bridge near Old Greenville, Missouri.  The old bridge will be removed once traffic has been switched to the new lanes.

While roadway traffic may not be affected, recreational boating near the bridge will be restricted by buoys and signs at times during construction. 

Work is scheduled to begin this summer with completion anticipated in summer 2009.  This is the fifth contract awarded for work being done in to upgrade U.S. 67 to four lanes in Butler, Wayne and Madison counties in southeast Missouri.
