Route study: Public can attend I-66 workshop

Monday, April 21, 2003

SIKESTON - The Missouri Department of Transportation and Kentucky Transportation Cabinet will hold the fourth in a series of public workshops for the Interstate 66 Corridor Study.

Two meeting are scheduled. The first is May 5 in Kentucky, the second May 6 in Sikeston at MoDOT's Southeast District office at the Sikeston Business, Education and Technology Park on North Main.

During these meetings, the study team will present detailed analysis and evaluation of the remaining alternative corridors for I-66 proposed during the December workshops. Recommended route alternatives that will advance to the next level of evaluation for further refinement will also be presented.

"The meeting will be conducted in an open house format," said MoDOT District Engineer Scott Meyer. "Everyone in the area is invited to drop by anytime between 5 and 7 p.m. to visit one-on-one with members of the project team and provide comments on the recommended corridor locations."

As with the previous workshops, several displays and information material will be available as well as public comment sheets.

The study is to investigate possible corridors and develop a public involvement program to address the needs of residents, businesses and motorists in the proposed I-66 corridor area in eastern Missouri and western Kentucky.
