The Missouri Department of Transportation will host a public meeting Jan. 18 to share preliminary plans for improving safety along U.S. Route 61/67 at the intersections of St. Johns Church Road and Miller Road East in Arnold.

The open-house style meeting will be held from 4 to 6 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 18 at St. John’s Lutherna Church, 3517 Jeffco Blvd., 63010. In the event of inclement weather, the meeting will be held Jan. 25.
