A New and Improved
Welcome. This web site was created to keep you, our customer, informed concerning the Scott Boulevard Corridor project. The Scott Boulevard Corridor begins in northeast Columbia at State Route E and continues south through western Columbia to State Route K.
The improvements to Scott Boulevard are being completed in phases as funding allows. Phase I was completed in 2009. Phase II will begin in 2014 and Phase III is scheduled to begin in 2016. The northern phase of the project which involves an interchange at I-70 is unfunded and thus does not have a construction date assigned.
We hope you will take this journey with us as we work to improve one of Columbia's major roadways and will stop by this site often to learn about the projects and to view the progress as we begin Phase II. Check out the ever expanding Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ'S) page from time to time as well.
We're also listening to you. If you have specific concerns during the project, please call us at (573) 874-7250 or email us at PubW@GoColumbiaMo.com
