According to the MODOT news release October 5, 2015, MODOT will be holding a public meeting October 22, at the Seneca High School, 1110 Neosho St., Seneca, MO. The meeting is set to last from 4 pm to 6 pm and will be a come and go style meeting with NO formal presentation planed. Members of the community are welcome to come and discuss the findings on the traffic studies that have taken place since the four-way flashing red signal has been put in place and the speed limit dropped to 55 mph.
MODOT officials will be able to answer public concerns about the intersection and what future improvements may be implemented at this intersection. At the August 10, 2015 Seneca City Council Meeting, MoDOT Representatives Linda Bokel and Laurel McKean were present to announce left over “safety funds” have been pooled and allocated to the Highway 43/Highway 60 intersection project. Ms. Bokel stated “the first step will be for members of the community to contact her with ideas and concerns for the intersection project. She said contacting her will enable us to have the most effective traffic control in the planning.” Ms. McKean reviewed a single lane roundabout is currently the plan for the Highway 43/Highway 60 intersection. She added there are special requirements that will need to be met due to the oversized dimensions needed to accommodate the large trucks/loads that are transported on Highway 60. (review Mins)
Citizens and business owners are encouraged to attend this meeting to receive the most current information about the improvements to the 43 and 60 intersection.
