Celebration to mark start of highway project
Monday, October 8, 2012
State of Missouri and local officials on Oct. 15 will celebrate the beginning of a project to construct a new four-lane section of U.S. 50 in Osage County.
Nearly seven miles of U.S. 50 will be relocated and widened to four lanes, from the U.S. 50/63 junction to County Road 604 west of Linn.
The $25.5 million project was awarded to Iron Mountain Construction Services. Work is expected to be completed by September 2014.
The ceremony, which is set for 10:30 a.m., will be held near the Highway 50/63 interchange. To access the ceremony location from the west, take U.S. 50 east of the 50/63 interchange and turn right at the first exit onto the outer road.
From the east, travel west on U.S. 50 to one half-mile past the Maries River, and turn left onto the outer road.
