WENTZVILLE (KMOV) -- Wentzville officials say they are working hard to improve safety at a dangerous exit in the area.
Wentzville Mayor Nick Guccione says after the mounting accidents and deaths at Highway P and 61 he’s now trying to reach out to MoDOT.
“There’s nothing to slow down traffic to let people cross. You kind of have to play chicken to get across the highway.”
He says MoDOT responded by saying the organization is low on funds. The city is now searching for outside funding for the project
MoDOT has said many of the roads in Wentzville were built long before the population grew to its current levels.
