In the event of water over the roadway on Old Mill Creek Rd. in the area of Old Mill Creek, Columbia Public Works will open the intersection of Scott Blvd. and Thornbrook Terrace to emergency and non-emergency traffic. We will issue press releases, post to social media, and update this site should conditions warrant the opening of the access point. When there are no access issues via Old Mill Creek, the intersection of Scott Blvd. at Thornbrook Terrace will remain closed to facilitate and maintain the constructions schedule. We appreciate you patience while we work to complete this project on schedule.
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 voter approved improvements to Scott Boulevard are being completed in phases as funding allows. Phase I was completed in 2009. Phase II began March 3, 2014 and is scheduled to be complete by October 31, 2014. Phase III is scheduled to begin on August 28, 2015. 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 construction progress via the construction site web cam. 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
