MACON - In an effort to provide more opportunities for northeast Missourians to communicate directly with transportation officials and state and federal elected officials, MoDOT is inviting the public to dialogue about local transportation issues and concerns. A dialogue session will be held near Lancaster at the Tri-County Electric Coop Association building on Thursday, March 29th from 4:30 p.m. until 6:00 p.m. Elected officials have been invited, and Representative Craig Redmon and Tanner Smith from Congressman Blaine Luetkemeyer's office are planning to attend.
"We are focused on taking care of our transportation system, while keeping citizens safe and delivering excellent customer service," said MoDOT Area Engineer Amy Crawford. "To do this, we need area partners and residents to share their input on what type of transportation system they desire," she added.
There is no agenda for the dialogue session. However, Crawford and Assistant District Engineer Kevin James will be at the session to provide any updates on projects for the year. Participants are encouraged to write down any questions they may have about MoDOT or transportation in general and bring them to the dialogue session. If they cannot attend the session, questions can be emailed to NECR@modot.mo.gov or by calling 1-888-275-6636.
To keep informed of road work in the area, MoDOT encourages the use of its e-update email subscription service, which is found on its web site. For more information about this service, the dialogue session or other transportation-related issues, please call MoDOT's toll free customer service line at 1-888-275-6636.
