Series of Community Listening Sessions Planned for Diggins and Seymour as Webster County Embarks on Study of Route 60 Corridor Improvements
Webster County – Area residents in Diggins and Seymour are invited to give their input on a transportation safety study along Route 60 that includes future planning for roadway intersections, railroad crossings, and other safety improvements. The County will be hosting a series of 3 listening sessions in Diggins and 3 in Seymour as well as other communities within Webster County along the Route 60 corridor during the next few months.
Webster County is beginning a study to look at the safety and function of at-grade railroad crossings and highway intersections along the Route 60 corridor. The study includes various locations along Route 60 within Webster County from Rogersville to Seymour.
The first of three listening sessions are planned for the following time, date, and location:
- 5:00 – 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 18, at the Diggins Community Center, 281 S. Diggins Main St.
- 6:00 – 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 25, at the Seymour City Hall, 123 W. Market Street
Each listening session will be come-and-go style with a presentation beginning at 6:00 PM. Following the presentation, participants are encouraged to engage in conversations with county representatives on what they would like to see as part of the future planning for the corridor.
At each session, County representatives will visit with residents and get their input on safety at the crossings and intersections. The information gathered will help prioritize future improvements along the corridor, however there are no timelines for when or if improvements will be made. The projects will be determined as (or if) funding becomes available.
For those unable to attend the listening sessions, a survey will be available at city hall and online at www.webstercountymo.gov/county-commission after the meeting. Those interested in the topic are encouraged complete and submit the survey that is included on the webpage by June 28th. Residents are encouraged to ONLY fill out the survey that pertains to their community.
