Ribbon Cutting Ceremony Held to Celebrate Nearing Completion of I-55 Outer Road Project in Scott County

SIKESTON - The Missouri Department of Transportation held a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the nearing completion of the outer road project along Interstate 55 in Scott City at 10 a.m. Tuesday, Dec. 18.

The project included grading, paving, signal installation at the I-55 and Route AB interchange, and construction of an outer road from Route K to Route AB near Scott City. Additionally, a new bridge was constructed over Ramsey Creek for the outer road. 

Final work is currently underway, with contractors installing guardrail and striping. The outer road is expected to open by the end of the year, weather permitting.

Speakers included:

  • Mr. Tom Schulte on behalf of U.S. Senator Roy Blunt
  • Scott County Presiding Commissioner Jamie Burger
  • MoDOT Assistant District Engineer Matt Seiler

The Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission awarded a contract in June 2010 for the project. The $4,333,380 contract was awarded to R.L. Persons Construction Inc., Poplar Bluff, Mo.
