Improvements Planned for Dangerous Intersection South of Palmyra
MODOT is planning improvements at the US-61/24 and Route F intersection south of Palmyra.
The project is in the final design phase. A public informational meeting is planned for Tuesday, March 26th at the Marion County Courthouse in Palmyra. The 90 minute meeting begins at 5 p-m with a formal presentation followed by questions and open discussion.
A citizen’s advisory group was formed almost two years ago to identify viable options to reduce fatalities and disabling injuries at the intersection. Eight area residents… leaders and elected officials participated and ultimately determined that a median U-turn would be the best option along with a deceleration lane for Route F on US 61.
