I-55/Gluckstadt Road Interchange Improvements

MDOT Project No. NH-0055-21(163)/102315 001000 Madison County

The initial Stakeholder Interviews were conducted on Monday, October 13, 2008, to gather input on the proposed project during early phases of the NEPA (National Environmental Protection Act) process. Information on why the proposed project is needed has been provided to MDOT reps and their environmental contractor for the project: Gresham, Smith and Partners.

MDOT hopes to be able to "fast track" this project.

There are many questions and decisions that must be addressed as part of the environmental impact process. One of the most critical decisions may be whether to close the overpass leaving only the on/off access ramps on either side during specific portions of the reconstruction. This option is estimated to shave months off the construction time frame and save a substantial amount in terms of costs.

Intial public reviews are estimated to be conducted in the Jan/Feb 2009 timeframe.

D.I., under the circumstances I recommend closing the overpass in order to save both time and money. A fast track towards rebuilding this interchange is prudent and possibly life saving. This project, together with the widening of Gluckstadt Rd., will greatly enhance this area of Madison County! Thank you!
