MoDOT gives up HELP, Inc. board position

JEFFERSON CITY – Nearly two decades ago, truckers traveling in Missouri encountered delays and long back-ups impacting interstate traffic because they had to pull into weigh stations. Subsequently, the Missouri Department of Transportation worked with HELP Inc., to create a new industry utilizing advanced technology to validate safety data and weigh commercial vehicles. This non-profit, public-private partnership created financial and safety benefits for Missourians. MoDOT also had a staff person serve as a board volunteer to assist in this evolving industry.

On May 3, Missouri Highway and Transportation Commissioners discussed concerns about perceptions of MoDOT employees serving as volunteer board members for HELP, Inc. Given the recent signing of contracts with two different vendors to provide weigh station services, MoDOT staff will no longer serve as board volunteers.
