MoDot Listening Tour

Representatives from the Missouri Department of Transportation were in Maryville last night to hear from area residents on what they feel should be in MoDot's long-range transportation plan.

MoDot's "On-the-Move" listening sessions are being held throughout the state and Northwest District Engineer Don Wichern says there have been two main themes from each meeting.

MoDot is funded through a fuel tax paid at the pump and Wichern says the more fuel-efficient vehicles become, the less money MoDot has to spend on road improvements.

Wichern adds the Missouri General Assembly is currently debating a one percent sales tax increase which would be earmarked for road improvements if approved by Missouri voters. Another MoDot listening session will be held in St. Joseph tomorrow evening from six to eight o'clock at the Fulkerson Center on the Missouri Western campus.
