One section of the new Hwy 5 project to open this summer
Traffic will be moving much easier this summer with the opening of the 7.5 mile stretch of State Route Hwy 5 through Camdenton. The new highway will extend from the Niangua Bridge south to Lake Road 5-112, bypassing for many the local traffic at the town square.
Eventually the new Hwy 5 will connect to a 4-lane project under construction south of Camdenton extending towards Lebanon.
With the new 65 mile per hour speed limit, commute times for local residents can be reduced substantially - not to mention how it will fasciliate traffic for people passing thru our area.
