The MoDOT Cost Share/Economic Development Committee awarded up to $4.9 million to the Agri-Business Expo Center to design and construct a diamond interchange.
The exit will be located approximately one mile east of the Riverside Road/Route AC interchange on U.S. Highway 36.
The interchange will serve a private road that will lead south to Pickett Road, through the Agri-Business Expo Center’s 150-acre campus. To the north, the road is expected to eventually connect to the Mitchell Woods Business Park.
“We are so excited to have this incredible opportunity to partner on the Agri-Business Expo,” said Don Wichern, MoDOT Northwest District Engineer. “Not only will this project help deliver a better transportation system for the St. Joseph area, but it will help advance economic development for the region and provide for a more prosperous Missouri.”
the Agri-Business Expo Center will include a Life Science Park for research and education; an Exhibit Park with an expo hall and agriculture arena; and Commercial Park offering hotel and retail development.
A number of public and private entities worked together to bring the project to Northwest Missouri.
