MoDOT still working out plans on I-55 construction project between Pevely and Festus

(Jefferson County) The Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) continues to map out the future construction project on I-55 north and south between Route Z in Pevely and the Highway 61-67 interchange south of Festus.

MoDOT Engineer Stephen O’Connor says they are in the process of wrapping up conceptual report.

We asked O’Connor what MoDOT’s preliminary thoughts are on the design build.

While planning is still in the early phases, initial thought is that road work could begin in late 2023 or early 2024.
