Webster County – Webster County will hold a third round of public meetings in late October and early November to share information as work progresses on a study of Route 60 Corridor Improvements.
The County received excellent feedback from surveys and information gathered from area residents at the first two rounds of public meetings held in June and July. Working with the engineering consultant, the information gathered helped to develop several safety alternatives along the corridor and determine vital safety and connectivity improvements.
During the third and final round of public meetings, Webster County and the engineering consultant will present the findings of the study and the long-term corridor plan to move forward. The information includes the final version of the long-term corridor plan, public survey and voting results, and estimated costs and benefits of proposed improvements.
The final public meetings are planned for the following times, dates, and locations:
- 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, October 22, at the First Baptist Church Gym, 101 W. Mill St.
- 6:00 p.m. Tuesday, October 29, at Fordland City Hall, 296 Burks St.
- 5:00 p.m. Tuesday, November 12, at Diggins Baptist Church, 3700 Normandy Rd.
- 6:00 p.m. Tuesday, November 19, at Seymour Senior Center, 205 N Commercial St.
Webster County thanks the Rogersville, Fordland, Diggins, and Seymour communities for their participation in the Route 60 Corridor Study. The local information provided is invaluable as work progresses to build a prioritized list of possible rail crossing and highway intersection safety upgrades and develop the future vision of the southern Webster County transportation network.
The County is conducting the safety study along the Webster County section of Route 60 between Rogersville and Seymour. The study will give the county a blueprint for moving forward with improvements when funding becomes available.
