Statewide Transportation Improvement
The Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission Wednesday approved the 2020-2024 Statewide Transportation Improvement Program at a meeting in Richmond.
The program is the Missouri Department of Transportation’s list of 1.872 highway and bridge projects that are planned by state and regional agencies.
The program focuses on taking care of the state’s existing transportation system by annually investing in the 1,014 lane miles of interstate pavements, 1,346 miles of major route pavements, 2,652 miles of minor route pavements and 213 bridges.
This Statewide Transportation Improvement Program includes funding for the “Focus on Bridges” program that was initiated by Gov Mike Parson and funded by the General Assembly approved budget with a one time $50 million inject of general revenues for the rehabilitation and/or reconstruction of 45 bridges.
