With Summer in full swing comes construction zones on our highways and byways. There are plenty of projects out there too, including the US 61 improvements underway in Palmyra.

Since the start of the project, MoDOT officials have found a need to make the project even safer for both motorists and workers. So beginning today, motorists will NOT be allowed to turn left from Main Cross, heading north onto US 61.

Eventually, an probably within the next few weeks, the entire intersection will be closed to finish the improvements in that area. According to MoDOT officials, the left turn from Main Cross on to US 61 will be allowed again when the intersection improvements are completed.

MoDOT has also made information available on this project at
