The Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission has awarded several Mid-Missouri transportation improvement projects.

Columbia-based APAC-Missouri Inc. will overlay and repair more than 27 miles of U.S. 63 between Columbia and Jefferson City in both the northbound and southbound lanes. The contractor submitted the lowest bid of $8,481,805.

APAC also was awarded a contract to improve more than 14 miles of U.S. 50, Business 50 and state Route K in Moniteau County. The low bid for the project was $1,996,670.

Rolla Asphalt LLC will improve the pavement and shoulders along nearly 18 miles of Missouri 19 in Gasconade County, between Hermann and Drake. Their low bid for the work was $2,231,234.

All projects are scheduled to be done during the 2014 construction season.

The six-member commission approved the contracts by electronic ballot Monday.

MoDOT spokesman Bob Brendel said the commission's meeting scheduled for Wednesday was cancelled due to the special session.
