Roundabout Construction & Impact to RHS Entrances
Construction of the roundabout on M Highway near the north entrance of Republic High School has begun. MoDOT has informed the district that beginning at 9:00 a.m. on May 29 M Highway will CLOSE to all traffic between ZZ Highway and a point just east of Farm Road 103. This area will remain closed until the completion of the roundabout, which we are told will be by August 9 (prior to the 2019-20 school year).
Between May 29 and August 9 the only functioning entrance to RHS will be from ZZ Highway. This means all summer traffic will need to access RHS using the ZZ Highway entrance.
As the 2019-20 school year approaches the Republic School District will be working with MoDOT to distribute educational materials to students, employees and the community at large in regards to traffic behaviors needed to navigate the roundabout. Thank you for your patience and cooperation during this construction.
