I-44 INTERCHANGE PROJECT

Project Description

Project Description:          

In Webster County Missouri, the proposed interchange project is located near mile marker 103 on I-44, along the northern city limits of Marshfield, and approximately 2.10 miles northeast of the existing interchange of I-44 and Route 38 (Spur Drive).  The project is also within the limits of the Southwest Missouri Council of Governments (SMCOG), the regional planning commission for the area.  The project as presented, would provide connectivity from the I-44 North Outer Road (Western Termini) to MO-CC (Eastern Termini) – also known as old Route 66.  The proposed project is just north of the existing BNSF Mainline Track and the National Route 76 Transamerica Bike Trail that runs along Route 38. 

The Purpose and Need for this interchange include:  increasing roadway connectivity, reducing roadway congestion, enhancing roadway safety, encouraging economic accommodation, reducing emergency response times and finding a solution to these needs that is consistent with local and regional planning.  The “Base Project” includes the implementation of a new interchange with I-44 (Western Termini) that connects to MO-CC (Eastern Termini).  The ultimate build scenario would also include the future extension of MO-CC (From I-44 to MO-W), providing connectivity between MO-W, I-44, and MO-CC. 

There is not sufficient funding for the ultimate build scenario, so a phased approach has been developed to implement the “Base Project” from I-44 to MO-CC, that includes an added alternate for the extension of Elm Street from the new outdoor activity center to the new MO-CC if funding becomes available.
