The Missouri Department of Transportation has announced the highway 5 widening project will be completed by the November, 2015 deadline. However, due to budget and funding problems, the project almost didn’t happen. The total cost will be over $1.8 million dollars and will be shared between sunrise beach and MODOT. The final cost was decreased by MODOT scheduling it to be done at the same time as another area project. A loan in the amount of $225,000 from the Missouri Transportation Finance Corporation will cover the remaining cost of the project.
