US 51/County U/County K/Business 51 Interchange - Need/purpose

Why is this project needed?

  • Existing US 51 pavement is deteriorated and thus is in need of replacement
  • County U structure spanning US 51 does not meet current design standards and vertical clearance requirements, and thus needs to be replaced

These two elements make up a large portion of the overall interchange, which requires reconstruction of the entire interchange to meet current design standards, while addressing the two immediate improvement needs.

Project benefits/anticipated outcomes

  • Improved safety and mobility for motorists, bicyclists and pedestrians
  • Improve structural deficiencies
  • Improve the roadway geometrics and roadway features to current design standards
  • Improve the deteriorated pavements
  • Provide operational improvements throughout the US 51/County U and K/Business 51 interchange
