One Year After Crash, Traffic Signal Repairs Still Not Complete

In September of 2021, a semi struck a traffic signal at the corner of Washington and Webster Street in downtown Chillicothe.  The traffic signal pole included a stop light that is above the street and crosswalk lights on the corner pole.  MoDOT crews responded to the sight and put a temporary pole on that corner, with only a signal light on the corner, but not overhead.

Since that time, there have been no crosswalk signals at the intersection.

MoDOT is currently working to find a replacement pole for that intersection, but that model or style is no longer available.  They are unsure when the current temporary signal pole will be replaced with the overhead signal, similar to what was in place when it was struck.
