The Missouri Department of Transportation plans to hold a series of planning meeting open to the public in all of its seven districts throughout October.

The agency said in a statement that these will be “general discussion” meetings aimed at reviewing the current condition of the state transportation system, how MoDOT currently spends its resources to take care of transportation assets that would cost an estimated $125 billion to replace, and how additional funding that could result from the Proposition D ballot initiative up for a vote on Nov. 6 could best be used for setting “regional priorities.”

MoDOT added that these meetings will also help “lay the groundwork” for the development of the next Statewide Transportation Improvement program that will formulate the agency’s construction commitments for 2020 through 2024; a draft of which will be sent to the Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission in May 2019.

“We expect these to be robust conversations about road and bridge priorities and how we can all work together to incorporate potential new resources into our plan of action for the future of transportation in Missouri,” MoDOT Director Patrick McKenna said in a statement.

The October meetings, which are open to the public, are scheduled as follows:

  • 4 – St. Louis, Maryland Heights Community Center, 10 a.m.
  • 9 – Jefferson City, McClung Park Indoor Pavilion, 12:30 p.m.
  • 10 – St. Joseph, Remington Nature Center, 1 p.m.
