A long-awaited project MoDot says will improve safety on Route 54 begins Monday. The Department of Transportation will be installing several safety features at a number of intersections between Camdenton and Osage Beach. The project includes:
– Installation of guard cable
– Creating a westbound acceleration lane at Kay Largo Road and deceleration lanes at Key Largo, Runabout, and Cape Woods drives
– An acceleration lane at Route A
– J-turns east of Key Largo and Route A and west of Route A
The work is scheduled for completion in August of next year. MoDot says there will be one lane open in both directions on 54 during the course of the project.
