MoDOT Upgrading Route 5 in Camden County
Now, MoDOT's changing that with its largest-ever grading project, seven miles of a new Route 5, including two lanes north of Camdenton and four lanes through the county seat.
"This will decrease the congestion on the existing Route 5 right now," explained MoDOT's Chris Graham. "Like I said earlier, make it a much safer roadway to travel."
Some businesses might end up farther from the highway, but the trade-off is a roomier road.
