The Missouri Department of Transportation improved safety and promoted economic development in a fast-growing part of southwest Missouri. MoDOT used $35 million in savings from past road construction projects to build the U.S. 60 Rogersville Project, which consisted of building a new “dog bone” roundabout at the interchange of Route 60. The Rogersville project was 20 years in the making and has resulted in a safer route for residents and drivers to get in and out of the community, greater economic development, and a new generation of student interest in engineering, as MoDOT partnered with the local school district to get students involved in the field during this project.
Construction began in September 2014 and was completed in November 2016 – one month ahead of schedule.
