HANNIBAL, MO – The Missouri Department of Transportation (MODOT) is conducting a public survey to gather input on the U.S. 61 Expressway EIS Re-evaluation study. The public survey period will conclude December 30, 2022. “It is important our engineers have a good understanding of how drivers in the area use U.S. 61, so we appreciate people taking a few minutes to complete the survey,” explained MoDOT Project Manager Christopher Knapp. There are 17 questions, and it will take approximately 8 minutes to finish the survey.
The re-evaluation study will review the four alternatives presented in the 1996 Route 61 Marion/Ralls Counties Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS)/Record of Decision (ROD). The 1996 FEIS/ROD was initiated to investigate solutions to traffic congestion, delay, and safety on U.S. 61 through Hannibal and evaluated four roadway alternatives. ““A lot has changed in the past 25 years, so we need to gather input from the community on how they view the highway,” Knapp explained.
