Hearing will discuss Highway 34 project in Bollinger, Cape counties

Wednesday, January 2, 2013

The Missouri Department of Transportation will hold a public hearing from 4-7 p.m. on Tuesday to discuss improvements to Highway 34 in Bollinger and Cape Girardeau counties. The hearing will be held at Burfordville Baptist Church, located on Route HH in Burfordville. The meeting will have an open-house format, so visitors can stop by to talk one-on-one with a member of the project team. No formal presentation will be given. This project will be similar to other work underway along the Highway 34 corridor, including resurfacing, adding shoulders and improving the side slopes. The project will extend over 15 miles, from 1.5 miles east of Highway 51 to Highway 72 near Jackson. A contract for the project is expected to be let in winter 2013, with construction in 2014. For more information, call transportation project designer Jeff Wachter at 573-472-5294, project manager Eric Krapf at 573-472-5261 or 888-275-6636.
