Route 13 Intersection Improvement Public Meetings
Planned for Collins and Bolivar Week of January 16

St. Clair and Polk Counties – Area residents are invited to public meetings in Collins and Bolivar during the week of January 16 to provide input on safety improvements to high crash intersections along Missouri Route 13 between Clinton and Springfield, the Missouri Department of Transportation said. 

The Collins public meeting will be held from 4:30 to 6 p.m. on Tuesday, January 17, at Collins Town Hall, 1604 Main Street.  

The Bolivar public meeting will be held from 4:30 to 6 p.m. on Thursday, January 19, at Freshwater Church, 4787 S. 135th Road south of Bolivar (Route 13 west outer road near Polk County Route U/Y). 

The meetings will be come-and-go style with NO FORMAL PRESENTATIONS.  

MoDOT will use the comments from area residents along with vehicle crash data to decide which intersections will see improvements and what improvements are possible with a limited budget.  

Those who cannot attend the in-person meetings can visit an online public meeting at www.modot.gov/southwest. The same exhibits displayed at the in-person meeting will be available online. 

MoDOT has a limited budget set aside to improve intersections with high crash rates that can be remedied with a low-cost improvement.  All types of improvements are possible including J-turns, left turn lanes and right turn lanes.  There are no plans to place traffic signals at any of the Route 13 intersections. 

MoDOT is holding a series of public meetings in Clinton, Lowry City, Collins, Bolivar and a location north of Springfield during the month of January to get public input.    

A second series of public meetings will be held later in 2017 or early 2018 to share the plan for intersection improvements.  It is likely that the intersections selected for safety improvements will see work begin as early as the summer of 2018.
