60-174 Intersection Reconstruction Project

Cleanup Copy 3 (6)

Finally, a fix! Work began in August 2020 on rebuilding the intersection of U.S. 60/MO 413 at MO 174. This MoDOT project will result in improved traffic flow and increased safety at this busy junction. $4-million worth of improvements are taking place, including:


  • Relocating the eastbound U.S. 60 lanes to adjoin the westbound lanes, eliminating the large median gap.
  • Combining the current two separate intersections into a single point four-way signalized intersection.
  • Building additional lanes, including dual left-hand turn lanes.
  • Installing new traffic signals and highway signage.
  • Constructing new crosswalks and sidewalks with a funding contribution from the City of Republic. 
  • Removal of current eastbound U.S. 60 lanes after new lanes have opened.


Construction is expected to take about a year to complete, with an anticipated opening in May 2021. Check here for more details and a timeline on construction:
