The Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission awarded two transportation improvement projects for Miller County at its July 9 meeting in Rolla.
Magruder Paving, LLC of Troy, Mo. was awarded a contract to overlay approximately 14 miles of Route 17 from Route 52 to Route 42 and nine miles of Route 52 from Route 54 to Route 17. Both roadways will have widened shoulders and rumble strips. The contractor submitted the lowest bid of $3,675,769. The work will take place in the 2013 construction season.
“These projects are welcome news for motorists in Miller County,” said Project Manager Bruce Green. “The improvements we’re making will not only provide a smoother ride for motorists, but a safer one as well.”
