SIKESTON-The Missouri Department of Transportation will hold a public meeting from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, July 27 to discuss the Exit 93 interchange in Cape Girardeau, Missouri. The meeting will be held at the Cape Girardeau Career & Technology Center, located at 1080 S. Silver Springs Rd., Cape Girardeau, Missouri.

The Exit 93 interchange connects southbound Kingshighway traffic to Interstate 55 or Route 74. The bridge in this location is referred to as a “flyover,” and it is in poor condition. The flyover was constructed in 1961 and currently carries more than 7,000 vehicles a day.

“The flyover needs to be replaced, and we are also exploring alternatives for reconfiguring the interchange,” said MoDOT Project Manager Tim Pickett.

MoDOT has been working with a consultant to review input from the public meeting held in January 2020 and develop alternates. Several potential alternates will be shared during the upcoming public meeting. To view the alternates, please visit

Pickett explained MoDOT examined multiple factors when considering potential reconfiguration options, including safety, simplifying connections, the level of service, improving bridge clearance and mitigating flooding issues at Route 74.

The public meeting will be open house style, and visitors can stop-by anytime between 3:30 and 6:30 p.m. to discuss the details of the project with the project team.

For more information, please contact Pickett at (573) 472-9003 or MoDOT’s Customer Service Center toll-free at 1-888-ASK MODOT (275-6636). A project webpage with additional information and an opportunity to comment is available at
