COLUMBIA, Mo. - A major improvement project is set to begin at a busy Columbia intersection Monday.
Weather-permitting, drivers can expect road crews at Old Highway 63 and Stadium Boulevard for several months.
The $1.75 million project will improve the intersection by increasing its size. Crews will also add pedestrian and bicycle upgrades to meet Vision Zero goals.
"Once construction is completed, the intersection will function much better for pedestrian and vehicle traffic. Also, the beautification improvements will have the intersection looking much nicer," said engineering supervisor Allison Anderson.
The cost will be split between the City of Columbia and the Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission. The city said it will fund the project by using revenue from a 2005 capital improvement sales tax.
The project is expected to be completed sometime this fall.
