Concerns about access to a highway in northeast Missouri has put a delay on a project that would complete a four-lane corridor across the northern one-third of the state. State transportation officials have pulled from Friday’s Highway Commission meeting final approval of the U.S. Highway 36 project – a project to four-lane a 52-mile stretch of road between Macon and Hannibal. But state traffic engineer Eileen Rackers says concerns about access to the road at South Shelby High School has prompted her agency to form a Safe Access Team to look at the situation. Rackers says highway commissioners should be able to give the project final approval during January’s meeting. She says that won’t delay the start or finish of the actual project.
