In 2014, MoDOT worked with stakeholders across the state to identify opportunities and actions to improve our freight transportation system to help meet the current and future needs of Missouri businesses and increase economic development and jobs.
Freight moved by truck, train, barge and plane is an essential part of Missouri’s economy and growth. The freight transportation system is how products such as soybeans and aviation parts are delivered around the world.
Making smart investments in our freight transportation system can provide better options for Missouri businesses to get their products to markets. An improved freight transportation system can also lower transportation costs and help to create more jobs.
