”Missouri awarded a $58.7 million contract April 1 to Sapp & Sons to build the final 5 miles of I-49 between Pineville and the state line in McDonald County. Work started May 11 with completion expected by Sept. 30.”

Done in 4 months? Really?

Bad news reporting

That was my initial thought, but I just checked the MDOT site and it indeed says 9/30/21:

No… construction began in April 2020.

That’s what he means by “bad news reporting”.



Also, shouldn’t this thread be merged with the main I-49 thread?
