Bleak Financial Forecast for MoDOT
MHTC Stops Adding Projects and Suspends Popular Cost-Share Program

Uncertainty about future federal funding, declining fuel tax proceeds and increasing costs of doing business have spurred the Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission (MHTC) to stop adding new projects to its five-year construction budget and to suspend its popular Cost-Share Program. The MHTC voted to do so at its Jan. 8 meeting.

MHTC Chairman Joe Carmichael, MoDOT Director Dave Nichols and MoDOT Chief Engineer Ed Hassinger discussed the foreboding financial future at last week's annual Missouri Transportation Conference in Jefferson City, co-sponsored by the Missouri Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Farm Bureau, the Missouri State Highway Patrol and MoDOT.

Travel Information Map App Improved

The latest release of the MoDOT Traveler Information Map is now available in Apple and Google Play stores. Whether you're an avid user or haven't tried this free app, now is the time.

Updates include:

  • More visible road condition lines.  (lines are now wider and solid so colors don’t blend with map colors on another layer).
  • Road conditions now appear when the map loads initially rather than users having to pinch and zoom for segments to appear.
  • The legend and layers have been separated.  The legend is now a floating button at the bottom right of the screen while layers is a predominately labeled button top right.
