MoDOT holds public meeting on Rte. 61 corridor in Jackson
JACKSON, Mo. (KFVS) - The Missouri Department of Transportation held a meeting on the Route 61 corridor.
The meeting was held from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Thursday, November 16 at South Elementary, 1701 S. Hope Street.
In total, three studies along the corridor were discussed as well as alternatives for intersection improvements and a possible center turn lane.
Those studies include:
- Corridor Study on Route 61 from the north interchange near Fruitland to the Route 25 intersection in Jackson. Alternatives for intersection improvements and a possible center turn lane will be shared. This study excludes the Deerwood intersection, the Hubble Creek Bridge replacement and the roundabout near the courthouse.
- Intersection improvement study at the Route 61/Shawnee Avenue intersection. Options to improve the existing intersection or relocate the signal to the east will be shared.
- Intersection improvement study at the Route 61/Donna Drive intersection. Options to improve the existing intersection and to relocate traffic from the Kimbel Lane intersection to the existing Donna Drive intersection will be discussed. Improvements in this location are included in the fiscal year 2027 budget.
