US 60 Project Freeway Design-Build
By reinvesting funds into the community, the award-winning US 60 Freeway is improving safety and access and promoting economic development in and around Rogersville, Missouri. The project, which was 20 years in the making, converted 4 miles of US 60 into an access controlled freeway. It includes three new interchanges and a series of connector roads, removed two traffic signals, and eliminated seven at-grade intersections along Route 60.
As part of the design-build team, TREKK conducted design and boundary survey and designed street lighting and temporary traffic signals. To help with the significant right-of-way acquisition needed for the new roadway, TREKK established about 30 parcels and retraced existing surveys along the entire project corridor.
TREKK designed lighting for the freeway’s innovative dog bone roundabout and barbell interchanges, as well as along two ramps. We also designed temporary traffic signals at two intersections, which were later removed and replaced.
Parallel to the project’s design, TREKK led a two-year outreach program introducing 15 young women at Logan-Rogersville High School to engineering careers. The program culminated with scholarships awarded to three students.
