The Missouri Department of Transportation will hold an informational public meeting April 28 to show the public preliminary plans to widen Route 100 between Route 47 and High Street.

The public meeting will be held April 28 between 3pm and 6pm at Washington City Hall in the Council Chambers, located at 405 Jefferson Street in Washington.

Maps and other detailed project information will be available at the meeting's open-house format. MoDOT welcomes the public to come to the meeting to discuss the project one-on-one with its engineers and representatives.

In addition, people who are not available to attend can view the same information on a virtual public meeting webpage at the following link:

The virtual public meeting will be live after 1 p.m. April 28 and available until May 12.

Route 100 has exceeded its capacity for a two-lane roadway and can no longer handle the amount of traffic that uses it on a daily basis. The Route 100 and Route A intersection has long traffic delays. The proposed widening and corridor improvements will provide better access to businesses and residential areas, provide increased safety, allow for a more efficient movement of traffic, and encourage future economic development along Route 100. 

MoDOT is proposing the following improvements to this section of Route 100:

  • Widen Route 100 to four lanes with a center turn lane from Route 47 to High Street. 
  • Add dual left turn lanes onto Route 100 from Route A and from Jefferson Street.
  • Add pedestrian accommodations at signalized intersections that are compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

Construction will occur on the north side of the existing roadway. Traffic will remain in its current location until the widening of the highway is mostly completed. There will be various lane closures during construction where motorists can expect delays.

Construction is expected to begin in Spring 2013 and will be completed by Spring 2014. The estimated right of way and construction cost is $7.7 million, and is a cost-share project with the City of Washington.
