The Missouri Department of Transportation’s Central and Northeast Districts have been honored with a National Roadway Safety Award for their successful program to reduce the high rates of fatal and serious injury crashes at three dangerous intersections on Highway 63. MoDOT officials say the three intersections along 63 are now safer to all drivers as a result of constructing the median U-turns at Clark, Atlanta and Hinton Road. The National Roadway Safety Awards are a biennial awards program sponsored jointly by the Federal Highway Administration and the Roadway Safety Foundation. The awards recognize roadway safety achievements that move the United States toward zero deaths and serious injuries on the nation’s roads.
