MoDOT and COVID-19

A message to our business partners:

At MoDOT, we continue to evaluate the COVID-19 pandemic and how it is affecting our operations. We are a provider of critical services to the public and, as such, we are keeping vital transportation projects and essential state highway maintenance operations moving to the best of our ability. 

We have a Continuity of Operation Plan in place that is designed to keep critical functions going. We are following the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control, the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services and the Office of Administration. We are encouraging social distancing and modifying travel when and where practical.

Public Meeting, Pre-Bid, Pre-Construction, and contract inspection and administration and consultant and professional services activities continue to move forward but are adhering to social distancing guidelines.

MoDOT is working with its partners in the contracting industry to emphasize the need for social distancing and adherence to other DHSS and CDC guidelines on job sites.
