Main street / Zora Interchange

I found this write up on the MoDot site. This will hopefully begin to relieve congestion at Stones Corner (N, Main - 171 highway).  

The Project
The interchange construction involves several major projects and will take approximately 12 months to complete. Upon completion, the interchange will include:
A bridge along Zora Street, that crosses over Main Street and the railroad tracks west of Main Street.
Exit ramps to connect north and south traffic along Main Street to the newly constructed east/west Zora Street and interchange.
A 3-lane road connecting Zora Street west of Main Street to Jasper County's Lone Elm Road. Traffic going south on Lone Elm will then connect to the intersection of North Schifferdecker Road and Belle Center Road.
More efficient traffic flow moving north/south on Highway 43 with on and off exit ramps to Zora Street. Two traffic signals along Main Street, one at Zora Street and one at Veterans Way, will be removed upon interchange completion.
Completion is scheduled for May 2013. This interchange also serves as a first step in connecting to the West Bypass, proposed to follow portions of County Road 290 (JJ Highway).
