MoDOT Presents 5-Year Transportation Plan For Review

The draft of Missouri’s Statewide Transportation Improvement Program was presented to the Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission. A 30-day public review and comment period will now be held.

The draft STIP makes available $13.8 billion of federal and state revenues for all modes of transportation over the next five years. There will be $9.9 billion in road and bridge construction contractor awards, averaging approximately $2 billion per year. It also contains details for the $2.4 billion of General Revenue for the Improve I-70 program, which in full includes $2.8 billion for the costs to plan, design, construct, reconstruct, rehabilitate and repair three lanes in each direction on nearly 200 miles of the corridor. In the past 10 years, MoDOT and its construction partners have completed 4,206 projects with a program value of $11.1 billion.

The proposed program is available for public review. The program is also available on MoDOT website. The formal comment period ends May 30, 2024.

The summary of comments will be presented to the Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission following the public review period. After reviewing the summary of comments and the final transportation program, it will be considered for approval at the July 10 MHTC meeting.
