As the number of fatal accidents in the area continues to grow, MoDot says they’re watching what’s going on. One stretch proving to be deadly, despite being relatively straight and fairly wide open, is north Highway-5 in the area of Greenview. MoDOT area engineer Bob Lynch says there’s not a lot right now that can be done about it.
Lynch does say plans are in place for installing more visible centerlines and edge line rumbles. There have been two fatal accidents over the past month with four people killed, including a young child, in the general area of Greenview.
