Public Meeting Seeking Input for Route 13
Intersection Improvements Set for Jan. 26

Lowry City – A public meeting seeking input on safety improvements to high-crash intersections along Missouri Route 13 between Clinton and Springfield is rescheduled for January 26 in Lowry City, the Missouri Department of Transportation said.

The meeting will be held from 4:30 to 6 p.m., Thursday, January 26, at the Lakeland Scout Hall on the corner of Route 13 and Route A in Lowry City.  The meeting was rescheduled from Thursday, January 12, due to a winter storm.

It is a come-and-go style meeting. NO FORMAL PRESENTATION IS PLANNED. 

MoDOT will use the comments from 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 meeting 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 limited funds set aside to improve intersections with high crash rates.  Many 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.

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.
