In its December issue, Roads & Bridges published a feature on how the Missouri Department of Transportation (MDoT) implemented an innovative plan to convert a 3-mile stretch of U.S. 60, a major expressway linking Rogersville and Springfield, into something more than an access-controlled freeway—one that not only could improve mobility, but also spur economic development and create a gateway to the city.
The article cited RS&H as the design firm that expanded the original plans to incorporate the economic development phase while still remaining under budget.
“Once we discussed the plans and saw how it provided connectivity and optimum mobility through the corridor, as well as include the community benefits of economic revitalization, we were on board,” said MDoT’s Sean Matlock.
