The proposal from the KCI Team — comprised of KCI Construction Company, Bartlett & West, and Wilson & Company — was deemed to be the apparent best value to taxpayers based on the project goals. The project will cost approximately $246 million to construct and will be complete by the end of 2026.
Project details include: constructing an additional lane on I-55 in both directions from Route Z to US 67; replacing the intersection of US 67 and Route CC with a grade separated interchange; constructing new interchanges at Route Z, McNutt, and US 67/I-55; adding lanes at the SB I-55 to SB US 67 ramp and the NB 67 to NB I-55 ramp; replacing 14 bridges; and rehabilitating 12 bridges.
“KCI is honored to be part of the team for this project," said Brent Krueger, Vice President of KCI Construction Company. "Our organization and our partners are thankful for the opportunity to serve MoDOT and the community in this important project for the region. We look forward to delivering on our common goals and commitments.”
