DOE RUN, Mo. (KFVS) - The Missouri Department of Transportation is conducting research and accepting public input on a proposed project to improve Route 221.

The proposed project would relocate several sections of Route 221 to provide more gradual curves and a straighter road in an effort to improve safety. It includes rebuilding the curve on Route 221 and Henrich Road and a series of curves from Howell Bridge to Henson Road in Doe Run.
