MoDOT to Hold Open-House Meeting on Buchanan County U.S. Route 169 Intersection

The Missouri Department of Transportation is planning an intersection improvement project on U.S. Route 169 at Southeast Riverside Terrace, near Saint Joseph.

This project was identified as a safety-improvement project and would realign U.S. Route 169 and Southeast Riverside Terrace to improve sight distance at the intersection.

This project is currently scheduled to go out for contractor bids as part of MoDOT’s May 2025 letting.

You can attend a public open house meeting on Tuesday, March 12, at the Missouri Department of Transportation’s Northwest District Office at 3602 N. Belt Highway in Saint Joseph.

Attendees are welcome to come any time between 4-6 p.m. to speak with project leaders.

There will be no formal presentation.

This meeting will allow the public to share their thoughts and concerns about the plans for the intersection and to provide comments, either directly to the engineers or through the comment form, on those concerns.

If you are unable to attend the open house, two other opportunities for public comment are available through Tuesday, March 26, 2024.
