MoDOT Seeks Public Input on Transportation Needs
A meeting will be held Monday afternoon to address the needs and challenges of Missouri's transportation system. It's a chance for St. Louis area drivers to voice concerns.
The Missouri Department of Transportation's ‘Blue Ribbon’ Committee hopes to hear input from residents Monday on future transportation needs.
MoDOT stated in a news release the meeting begins at 1 p.m. Monday at MoDOT's Transportation Management Center, 14301 South Outer Forty Road, in Town and Country.
MoDOT released the following information in that press release.
The future needs and challenges facing Missouri’s transportation system will be the subject of a series of public forums across the state this spring and summer.
The meetings are sponsored by the Blue Ribbon Citizens Committee on Missouri Transportation Needs that was appointed by Missouri House Speaker Steven Tilley, R-Perryville, in early March.
The Blue Ribbon Committee is a 21-member panel of business leaders, contractors and special interest groups from across the state.
“The purpose of the committee is to examine Missouri’s current and future transportation needs and explore possible solutions,” said Speaker Tilley. “We need to start a conversation with all Missouri citizens to make sure our transportation system can function at a level that will foster economic growth and handle growing traffic safely and efficiently.”
Working with the Missouri Department of Transportation, Tilley’s Blue Ribbon Citizens Committee has scheduled public meetings around the state to gather information from citizens and stakeholders.
