If you have ever dreamed of advocating for specific transportation projects in your community, now is an excellent opportunity to do so. With limited available and dedicated funding for projects that benefit bicycle riders, pedestrians and wheelchair users, and transit riders, incorporating projects onto this list allows MoDOT and partners to justify needs when seeking funding. According to MoDOT,
Missouri’s transportation system is a tremendous asset to the citizens of Missouri. The system consists of 33,825 miles of roads and 10,387 bridges, both of which rank among the largest for any state in the nation. The Missouri Department of Transportation working with its statewide regional planning partners have identified $1 billion in annual unfunded needs. From the broader unfunded needs, MoDOT has developed a High Priority Unfunded Needs list to guide the development of projects into funded projects as state and federal transportation funds increase.Via MoDOT
Projects are delineated by MoDOT District, and subsequently by county. There are also statewide projects on the list. Some of the projects already found on the list include:
