MoDOT public meeting will focus on Hwy. 160 improvements at Tecumseh curves

The Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission’s proposed improvements for the Tecumseh curves on Highway 160 in Ozark County will be the focus of a public meeting to be held from 4 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 6, in the Gainesville High School cafeteria on Bull Dog Drive in Gainesville. 

An announcement from Missouri Department of Transportation district engineer Mark Shelton said the proposed improvements include widening 1 mile of roadway, realigning two curves and adding paved shoulders and guardrail to the specified section of highway.

The meeting is being held so that “all interested persons” can express their views on the proposed improvement with reference to its “economic and social effects, . . . its impact on the environment and its consistency with the goals and objectives of the community,” the announcement said. 

Maps, plats and other detailed information will be available for inspection and copying at the MoDOT’s regional office, 3956 E. Main St. in Willow Springs. 

For more information about the meeting, or to request special services for disabled persons who wish to attend, contact project manager Pete Berry, 417-469-6242. See the legal notice, page 10.
