Phase 1 will begin summer 2014. Improvements include:

  • Reconstruct Route 291 from the interchange to the north through the south Walmart Drive intersection to widen for additional lanes
  • Reconstruct Cantrell Road, Commercial Street and Rock Haven Road to widen for additional lanes

Phase 2 is scheduled to begin in Spring 2016. Improvements include:

  • Widen Route 291 to five lanes north of south Walmart Drive through Water Road

How is this project funded?

This project is being funded through two primary sources. The first source is a one-cent sales tax levied by local business owners participating in the local Transportation Development District. The second source is funded through MoDOT's cost-sharing program.
