The Highlights

An effort to educate and inform Missourians on the current status and future direction of their transportation system.

The Missouri Department of Transportation is mission-centered. By focusing on customers and providing transparent measures of our progress, MoDOT delivers results through accountability, innovation and efficiency.

We have developed a system of performance metrics to deliver results while being good stewards of the state’s transportation dollars.

Since 2007, MoDOT has documented more than $5.4 billion in one-time or ongoing savings. This includes redirection of $97 million in efficiency savings in 2021 to roads and bridges and $830 million in savings to our customers. In the last 14 years, reinvestment in safety enhancements resulted in an estimated 863 lives saved.

MoDOT is not afraid to make tough decisions. In 2011, we responded to Missouri’s critical infrastructure needs by enacting the Bolder Five-Year direction, a plan that reduced 124 facilities, 750 pieces of equipment and 1,200 employees. Over a decade later, these actions have saved $1.2 billion.

During FY2021, early reports showed fuel revenue dropping across the state as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Because of this, MoDOT took aggressive actions to reduce spending, including temporarily reducing employee work hours and/or salaries using the Shared Work program. This kept MoDOT on budget with little impact to Missouri citizens.

MoDOT continues to re-examine all its activities from the delivery of projects for roads and bridges to daily operations. We are moving some of these savings into our daily operations and internal budgets to have the necessary resources and skilled, experienced employees available to meet more customer expectations.

MoDOT’s core values of safety, service and stability serve as our foundational pillars. MoDOT is committed to providing a safe, innovative and reliable transportation system, which is essential to Missouri’s economic growth.
