SIKESTON - An I-66 public information session is scheduled from 4 to 7 p.m. Monday at the Missouri Department of Transportation's Southeast District office, 2675 N. Main St. in the Sikeston Business, Education and Technology Park.
The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, along with MoDOT, is beginning a planning study for a portion of the proposed Transamerica Transportation Corridor (Interstate 66). The objective of the study is to investigate the needs of residents, businesses and motorists in the proposed I-66 corridor area in eastern Missouri and western Kentucky.
"Kentucky is the lead agency on this project and we are working with them to identify the most feasible corridor," said District Engineer Scott Meyer. "The project team will be looking at link-up options in Cape Girardeau and Mississippi counties in Missouri."
MoDOT and KYTC representatives will be present at the open house to share information on the corridor and gather public input. Several displays and informational materials will be available. Brief presentations are scheduled at 4 p.m. and 5:30 p.m.
Written comments should be directed to Scott Meyer, district engineer, Missouri Department of Transportation - Southeast Area, P.O. Box 160, Sikeston, Mo. 63801.
