Project Freeway: U.S. 60 Rogersville Wins National Award of Merit;
Now Moves On to Compete for Project of the Year Award

Rogersville, Greene/Webster Counties – Project Freeway: U.S. 60 Rogersville, the highway project that brought safety improvements to a four-mile section of Route 60 in Rogersville, has received the National Award of Merit from the Design-Build Institute of America. 

The project now competes nationally for the Project of the Year, the Missouri Department of Transportation said. 

Project Freeway built three new interchanges, removed two traffic signals, built a series of connector roads and eliminated seven at-grade intersections along Route 60. The project has improved safety and is moving traffic more efficiently through the community. 

The Design-Build Institute of America recognized MoDOT and its design-build contracting firm, Ozark Regional Road Constructors, for the project’s innovative design which included a “dog bone” roundabout interchange at Routes B/VV at Route 60 and the “barbell” interchange at Greene County Farm Road 253 and Route 60.  

The project also was recognized for including property acquisition in the design-build process.  

Project Freeway: U.S. 60 Rogersville was a $35-million dollar highway project built from October 2014 until its completion in October 2016.  MoDOT worked closely with the Rogersville community during the planning stages and during the construction to incorporate ideas for new interchanges and outer roads in the community which straddles the Greene-Webster county line.  MoDOT’s overall goal during construction was to keep drivers safe and minimize disruption to traffic, area businesses and residents.  

The Design-Build Institute of America will announce the Project of the Year winner at its conference in Philadelphia in November.
