Route 61 Expressway Re-evaluation Study in Hannibal, Marion County, Ralls County, Missouri

The Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) has conducted the U.S. Route 61 Expressway Re-Evaluation Study and additional traffic and safety analysis to determine if there are feasible alternatives to move forward into further project development.

A previous study was completed in 1996. Due to changes in development and traffic patterns over the years, the study was re-evaluated. From several proposed options, “Alternative F” was found to be the Preferred Alternative and is consistent with the 1996 Study conclusions even though it was the second most impactful to prime farmland and commercial displacements. It was found to be the most cost-effective and with the least environmental impacts.

Future improvements will be determined through MoDOT’s Planning Framework and Unfunded Needs update

When a highway expansion or road development cuts through your property — whether it be a home, a business, a farm or undeveloped land — the value of your property will be affected. You are entitled to compensation for lost land and any impact highway development has on your property value.

When determining the monetary impact on your property, increased noise and traffic, congestion, unsightliness, loss of parking, restricted use, resale value and other issues must be taken into account.

At Denlow & Henry, we understand the unique issues property owners face when highways and roads are expanded or relocated. We are committed to helping our clients protect and maximize their constitutional right to “just compensation.” We have successfully represented clients in actions involving major players in Missouri highway and road construction, including: - The Missouri Highway Commission (MoDOT), - The Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) - The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT)
