(PALMYRA)—Work begins today on a crossover of US 61 north of Palmyra at County Road 334. MODOT officials say the work will provide better access to the new Doyle Manufacturing plant under construction.

Pavement in the median crossover will be widened and replaced. A northbound right turn lane and a southbound left turn lane will also be added.

Bross Construction is the successful bidder on the 219-thousand dollar project.
