SCOTT COUNTY, MO (KFVS) - The Missouri Department of Transportation will hold a public hearing from 4 to 6 p.m. Thursday, May 23 to discuss construction of an interchange south of Scott City.
The hearing will be held at the Kelso City Hall, located at 426 S. Messmer in Kelso.
"Visitors can stop-by anytime between 4 and 6 p.m. to discuss the details of the project with a member of the project team and provide their comments," said Project Manager Eric Krapf.
The proposed interchange would provide access to south Scott City, as well as a connection from Interstate 55 to Kelso. Additionally, the project would relieve congestion at the Route 61/K/M/I-55 interchange.
The project is in the scoping phase, with MoDOT currently working to gain environmental clearances.
"Once funding becomes available, MoDOT will be ready to move forward with this project and begin the design phase," Krapf said.
