Through four key pillars of transportation-roads, bridges, safety and economic development-we feature business owners, workers, parents, students and travelers, all of whom have unique stories to tell about what matters most to them.
Roads keep all of us connected. MoDOT currently maintains 34,000 miles of roads, which means nearly all Missourians have a personal transportation experience when it comes to roads and highways.
Drivers shouldn't have to second guess the safety of the bridges they cross everyday. Prioritizing bridge maintenance and replacement is important when it comes to the nearly 10,400 bridges MoDOT maintains.
When it comes to personal experiences with transportation, safety is key. MoDOT is committed to the safety of Missourians through road maintenance, innovation and continuing safety education.
Having a solid transportation system allows communities to grow. Roads and public transit allow for access to jobs and establishments. Good access also attracts more businesses to communities.
