Officials with the state of Missouri and the city of Joplin gathered Thursday to celebrate the completion of a $9 million road project.

The Diamond Interchange at Range Line and Interstate 44 has been opened to traffic for a while but the official dedication came today.

The new arrangement replaced cloverleaf ramps with straight, directional ramps.

Officials say the project was completed on time and on budget.
