  • Only a few days remain for Missourians to share their thoughts about the draft regional transportation priorities list that was released June 13 by the Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission.
    Local planning agencies and transportation partners worked with the commission to develop the list, which was required as part of the provisions of Constitutional Amendment 7. The comment period closes at 5 p.m. on July 3.
    With approximately $4.8 billion in transportation projects and improvements reaching every county in the state, feedback from the public is critical.
    MoDOT has held public meetings in every region of the state to gather input and answer questions about the priorities list. The entire transportation priorities list and an online comment form are available at www.modot.org/movingforward. After all public comments are reviewed, the draft list will be updated and approved by the commission at its July 9 meeting.
    On August 5, Missouri voters will decide on Amendment 7, a ballot measure to temporarily raise Missouri’s sales tax by ¾ of a cent. All proceeds from the 10-year tax would go toward much-needed transportation improvements across the state.
