(KMOV) – The Missouri Department of Transportation is making plans to fix Missouri River flooding problems on a stretch of Highway 94 in St. Charles County.
MoDOT hosted an open house in Augusta Wednesday night to talk to some of the hundreds of people who rely on Highway 94 near Terry Rd. – located on the western edge of St. Charles County – to get to work and school every single day.
Officials will be raising a small section of Highway 94 about 3.5 feet, but traffic will have to take a large detour during the project.
MoDOT says it will take about six weeks to complete and should done by the summer of 2016.
Officials say they are still figuring out the exact detour drivers will be forced to take during construction.
