US 53 Corridor Preservation Study - Need/purpose

Why is this project needed?

The goal of the 75-mile corridor preservation effort is to protect the public investment in US 53 by planning for the long-term mobility and safety needs along the highway.

This study will help officially map and preserve the corridor for long-range improvements and allow individuals and communities to plan in harmony with the long-range plans for the US 53 Corridor.

Project benefits

  • Officially map the vision of the future improvements including future interchange locations, future overpasses/underpasses, and any local road system modifications.
  • Seek to avoid or minimize local impacts to existing homes, businesses and farm operations along the corridor.
  • Seek to avoid or minimize impacts to wetlands, endangered or threatened species or any archeological and historic sites.
  • Work collaboratively with local officials, business owners and residents to identify and plan for the long-term improvements in a manner that benefits all.
