SPRINGFEILD, Mo. – During a public meeting on Monday, Dec. 16, MoDot will reveal a computer animation showing expected traffic flow after a new railroad bridge is built in 2015-16 on East Chestnut Expressway.

The open house style meeting will be held from 5-7 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 16, in the MoDOT Southwest District Office at 3025 E. Kearney St.

An online public meeting will also begin Monday afternoon on MoDOT’s website, featuring the same exhibits as the in-person session.

The computer animation will show viewers how the railroad bridge will work and how traffic will move on Chestnut Expressway between Ingram Mill Rd. and Belcrest Ave, just west of U.S. 65.

Along with the new railroad bridge, a new traffic signal on Chestnut Expressway and Ingram Mill Rd. will be installed and access roads to businesses on either side of the bridge will be built.

Construction for the project is expected to begin in late 2015, with a completion date projected for December 2016.

One-lane will be open in each direction on Chestnut Expressway during construction, with traffic delays expected.

The project is estimated to cost $14.8 million.

People attending the in-person meeting to look at plans and the animation will be able to talk with project engineers and ask questions or provide comments.

Anyone going on line to view the project plans and animation will be able to submit comments electronically. Project engineers will respond to questions within a day or two. The online information will remain available on the MoDOT web site through construction.
