NWMO Transportation Funding Meeting Coming To Cameron

A public meeting has been scheduled in Cameron to gather public input on priority unfunded transportation needs for northwest Missouri.

Since the passage of Missouri’s additional 12.5 cent motor fuel tax increase in July, MoDOT staff have worked with metropolitan planning organizations and regional planning commissions throughout the state to develop a list of high priority unfunded road and bridge needs.

The draft project-specific lists include $4.5 billion of road and bridge projects in three tiers. Tier one includes $543 million and includes projects we could accomplish in the time of the current five-year Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) as federal and state funding levels increase. These projects have good estimates.

Tier two is worth $2.1 billion and includes projects beyond the current STIP timeframe with broader estimates. Tier three includes $2.2 billion of projects that are also beyond the current STIP timeframe with broader estimates.

In addition, MoDOT staff worked with the planning partners to identify $1 billion in multimodal needs.

The meeting will be held from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Friday, December 3, at the Cameron Regional YMCA Theater at 1903 North Walnut in Cameron. The presentation materials and a comment form are also available online at modot.org/unfundedneeds. The draft document and comment forms will be available online through December 22.

Missouri’s transportation system is a tremendous asset to the citizens of Missouri. The system consists of 33,830 miles of roads and 10,399 bridges, both of which rank among the largest for any state in the nation.
