MoDOT holds public meeting about roundabout project in Gordonville
GORDONVILLE, Mo. (KFVS) - Area residents attended a public meeting on Tuesday, Dec. 6 about the project to put a new roundabout at the intersection of Route 25 and Route K in Gordonville, MO.
The Missouri Department of Transportation hosted the meeting from 4 p.m. on 7 p.m.
“We conducted a study to examine installing a traffic signal or constructing a roundabout in this location,” said MoDOT Project Manager Tim Pickett. “Through the study, the preferred alternate was to construct a roundabout. The proposed roundabout will help traffic flow efficiently and will result in fewer delays during non-peak hours.”
Some residents Nicki Clark spoke with at the meeting say they would much rather have a light because they feel it’s safer.
Project manager Tim Pickett say they chose a roundabout to make traffic flow more efficiently.
The meeting was held at Gordonville Elementary School, located at 653 Route Z in Cape Girardeau, Missouri.
Construction on the roundabout is expected to begin as early as summer 2023, and it’s expected to be completed in winter 2023.
