Local and state officials will gather on Route 242 today to cut ribbon for two new roads.
Bob Lynch from MoDOT says the four-lane $8 million dollar route across the heartland will be opened after a ceremony.
The group will then travel to the 54 Expressway for a photo opportunity.
Bob talked yesterday about the new 242 and was asked if there will be large truck restrictions on Bagnell Dam with the new route.
KB will check in live from the 242 ceremony during the ten o’clock hour of the Morning Magazine.
The 242 ribbon cutting happens a quarter mile west of Fish Haven Road at ten.
