This project as now proposed involves widening approximately 15 miles of U.S. Route 65 in Benton County, Missouri, from two lanes to four lanes with consideration of relocation in the vicinity of Lincoln. We will also consider a two plus one improvement, which calls for two lanes with the addition of a passing lane, where needed.
