The Missouri Highway and Transportation Commission recently awarded a contract to Krupp Construction, of Ellisville, Missouri, for an improvement project on Baltimore Street in Kirksville. The project consists of resurfacing, American with Disabilities improvements and drainage improvements. The project will run from just north of Illinois Street to just south of Patterson Street. The City of Kirksville will be contributing over $111,000 towards the nearly $5 million dollar project for the addition of some sidewalk in the project area. Traffic will remain open to one lane while these improvements are made. MoDOT says a more specific schedule on this project will be shared once the contractor provides the plan for completing the work.
