Missouri Statewide Transportation Innovation Council (MoSTIC)


State-based Innovation Deployment - The STIC Network is about establishing a group of representatives from various levels of the highway community in each State to comprehensively and strategically consider all sources of innovation.


Purpose and Membership

The Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) and Local Public Agencies (LPAs) own the vast majority of ground transportation infrastructure and make key decisions on how to deliver projects, as well as what techniques and technologies to use in the operation and safety of these systems.  With ownership of these assets comes the responsibility for making decisions on constructing, maintaining, and operating them.  This often requires these entities to look for innovative material, methods, techniques, and technologies to balance the ever-growing needs of the system with the funds available to do so.  The Missouri State Transportation Innovation Council (MoSTIC) provides a forum in which transportation stakeholders can work together to foster such innovation in the State.   

Standing members

  • Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) 
  • Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) 
  • Local Technical Assistance Program (LTAP)

Selected members

  • Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs)

STIC Incentive Funding

The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) State Transportation Innovation Council (STIC) Incentive program provides resources to help STICs foster a culture for innovation and make innovations standard practice in their States. Through the program, funding up to $100,000 per State per Federal fiscal year is made available to support or offset the costs of standardizing innovative practices in a State transportation agency (STA) or other public sector STIC stakeholder. The program is administered by FHWA’s Center for Accelerating Innovation (CAI).
