Lafayette interchange plans take shape
Thursday, November 1, 2012
Unapproved preliminary plans for the new Lafayette interchange propose affecting several neighboring streets, as well as overpasses on Jackson and Chestnut streets.
At the kickoff meeting for the Lafayette Street Interchange Community Advisory Group, several key issues were presented and discussed, including how the project may impact neighboring properties, streets and institutions.
The Lafayette Street interchange with the Rex Whitton Expressway, a cost-share project with the city, county and state, is slated to begin construction in the fall of 2014.
Mike Dusenberg, transportation project manager with the central district of the Missouri Department of Transportation, said the unapproved preliminary plans include two major roadway issues dealing with Miller and Elm streets.
