At the halfway mark of the calendar year, Missouri’s traffic deaths are down when compared to the same time last year. Preliminary data indicated that 413 people died from the start of the year to June 22nd. 445 died in the same period last year.

Since the beginning of 2022, 35 counties across the state have had zero traffic fatalities. There have also been four separate instances of consecutive days with zero fatalities.

The Missouri Department of Transportation is encouraging all Missourians to take the safety precautions of buckling up, keeping the phone down, slowing down, and driving sober.

Lane closures for temporary work zones on Missouri highways will stop at noon Friday, July 1 and not resume until the morning of Tuesday, July 5. There are some exceptions for permanent lane closures for construction work or in the case of an emergency.

The Missouri Department of Transportation’s Traveler Information Map can be found at www.traveler.modot.org. It provides updated travel information, traffic conditions, and work zone locations.
