The Kirksville 63 bypass is ahead of schedule and set to start the next major component of the project — paving the roads. The project will now end in 2011 instead of 2012. The project has also been on its 30 million dollar budget, not asking for “change orders” that increase the cost. MODOT said they’ve kept the project ahead of schedule and on budget by splitting it into two projects. The hope is to get all the dirt moving done by Thanksgiving and then start paving.
