COLUMBIA, Mo. (KMIZ)

The Missouri Department of Transportation will hold a public meeting Wednesday, Dec. 7 at the ARC in Columbia -- 1701 W. Ash St. -- to discuss its High Priority Unfunded Needs list for transportation in Mid-Missouri.

The Missouri Department of Transportation -- working with its statewide regional planning partners -- identified $1 billion in annual unfunded needs, according to a press release earlier this month. MoDOT has developed a high-priority unfunded needs list to guide the development of projects. 

MoDOT staff has worked with metropolitan planning organizations and regional planning commissions to develop a list of high-priority unfunded road and bridge needs.  

The draft project-specific lists include $4.7 billion in road and bridge project needs in three tiers:

  • Tier 1: Includes $528 million and includes project needs we could accomplish in the time of the current five-year STIP as federal and state funding levels increase.  These projects have more refined estimates. 
  • Tier 2: Is worth $2 billion and includes project needs beyond the current STIP timeframe with broader estimates. 
  • Tier 3: Includes $2.2 billion of project needs also beyond the current STIP timeframe with broader estimates. 

The draft document and comment forms will be available online through Dec. 21.
