HIGHWAY 67 CORRIDOR REDEVELOPMENT PROJECT
The City of Park Hills Tax Increment Financing Commission anticipated and planned for the 50,000 square foot expansion of Hefner Furniture. The commercially zoned area around Hefner's will benefit from the newly built outer road and interchange. Additional retailers and others will be offered opportunities to locate in that area.
The outer road and the interchange are also constructed to serve the St. Francois County Fairground area with safe, convenient access for the 35,000 average daily traffic movements. The Fairground area already benefits from Park Hills sewer and water service, Missouri Natural Gas service, and three-phase electric service through AMEREN.
At this location is a new road connecting to the hiking/biking and ORV trailheads at St. Joe State Park. Below, is a conceptual plan of desired development in this area of the Fairgrounds Drive interchange.
