Ribbon-Joining Ceremony Planned For Project Freeway
In Rogersville on Tuesday, November 1

Webster/Greene Counties – A gathering is planned on Tuesday, November 1, to celebrate the completion of Project Freeway: U.S. 60 Rogersville, the project to upgrade Route 60 to a freeway through the Greene/Webster county community, the Missouri Department of Transportation said.  

A “ribbon-joining” ceremony is planned for 10 a.m. on Tuesday, November 1, at the Logan-Rogersville Upper Elementary School (306 S. Mill Street) on the northeast corner of Mill Street (former Route B) and Route 60. The community is invited to the ceremony. 

Construction on the project began in September 2014.  Three new interchanges were built at Routes B/VV, at Farm Road 253 and at Farm Road 247.  The work included removing two traffic signals along Route 60 in the Rogersville area and removing several at-grade intersections, making Route 60 much safer for drivers traveling through the Rogersville area. 

The project also included building a series of outer roads north and south of Route 60 in Rogersville.  

Due to savings from the acquisition of needed property for the project, MoDOT was able to add ramps to the bridge at Farm Road 247 at Route 60 to build a modified interchange and add a center turn lane on Route VV south of Route 60. 

Project Freeway: U.S. 60 Rogersville was designed and built by the Ozarks Regional Road Constructors (ORRC) group – a team made up of six design consultant and highway construction companies. 

Project Freeway: U.S. 60 Rogersville was a unique project, because the ORRC team joined with MoDOT to design and construct the project in a process called Design-Build. Typically, a state roadway project is designed by either MoDOT highway designers or outside engineering firms and then the project is bid out to construction companies.  In the Design-Build process, a group of design consulting and highway contractor companies band together to design and build a highway project.

  • Built an interchange at Route 60 and Farm Road 253
