Detour on School Road June 27-July 22

As part of the Peculiar Way road construction project, a detour will be implemented on School Road. Traffic at the curve on School Road at 211th Street will be re-routed to use the Ray-Pec School District campus drive around the Administrative Services Center. The detour will impact northbound and southbound traffic from approximately June 27 to July 22.

The construction will essentially remove the "curves" where School Road meets 211th Street. The improvements are associated with the construction of the new interchange at I-49 and 211th Street. The portion of 211th Street from Peculiar Drive to School Road has been re-named Peculiar Way.

The Missouri Department of Transportation and City of Peculiar hosted a groundbreaking ceremony for the interchange project on Aug. 25, 2015.

(The project is separate from Phase II of School Road construction from 195th Street to 203td Street.)
