Drivers using Highway 54 to go to Jefferson City this week may be seeing cyclists competing in the Race Across America as they make their way through Missouri. The Missouri Department of Transportation is urging motorists to be aware of the riders and their support vehicles and use extra caution in their vicinity. Cyclists travel at their own pace, so motorists could encounter single riders or groups at different times throughout each day. Race Across America is a cross-country cycling event that brings in cyclists from around the world. The race runs through Missouri until Friday.
