Project Status: The East Loop of Route 13 from south of Warrensburg to Route 50 opened in 2010. The north leg of the east loop opened in January 2013, and this project is now complete.

 Why is MoDOT doing this project?

Construction for a new Route 13 will help reduce congestion, improve existing public safety and improve economic development opportunities.

How does this project benefit me?

The first leg of a new Route 13 east of Warrensburg, known as the East Loop, will move through-traffic away from stop-and-go congestion in downtown Warrensburg. The south portion of the East Loop, from Route 50 south to existing Route 13 near Route Y, will be a two-lane roadway with the right of way for a future four-lane highway.


What is the project time line? 

Construction of the new 7-mile-long segment of the Route 13 East Loop is expected to be complete late 2010.

  • May 1, 2009: Start of excavation for US 50 bridges
  • Construction of the bridge over Bear Creek and UP railroad in 2009
  • October 31, 2009: US 50 open to two-lane traffic in each direction on new bridges and rebuild eastbound lanes
  • Excavation work will proceed north to south in 2009 and early 2010
  • Rest of bridge construction in 2010
  • Paving in 2010, finished by fall

How is this project funded? 

$27,153,931.66 of Amendment 3 funding includes the design, right of way acquisition and construction of a two-lane, two-mile section of the East Loop, from Highway 50 to Route DD.
