Project Freeway:

U.S. 60 Rogersville

Design/Build Team Announced

Ozarks Regional Road Constructor's (ORRC) plan for upgrading Route 60 to a freeway through Rogersville has been chosen as the best value and has been chosen to build the project.

ORRC is a joint venture of six engineering and construction companies that will work to build the project:

  • Radmacher Brothers Excavating Company, Inc. -- Pleasant Hill, MO

Construction is scheduled to begin this fall with completion set for December 2016 (See project schedule below).  

The project will convert Route 60 to a freeway between Greene County Farm Road 241 west of Rogersville and Chicory Road east of Rogersville.

  • Widen Farm Road 253 between Route 60 and Center Street
  • Build an interchange at Route 60 and Farm Road 253

Project Goals:

1. Deliver the project within the programmed budget of $35 million.

2. Convert U.S. 60 into a freeway between County Road 241 on the west and near Chicory Road on the east, providing two points of controlled access to U.S. 60 in the vicinity of Greene County Farm Road 253 and Webster County Route B/VV.

3. Engage stakeholders and the community to develop and deliver the project while minimizing impacts.

4. Impress our customers through innovative traffic control solutions that conveniently, efficiently and safely move drivers through the project during and after construction.

5. Create a new model for purchasing right-of-way on a design-build project.

6. Complete the project by December 2016.
