Public Comment: FY 2020 Transportation Priorities

In coordination with this effort, OTO develops an annual list of transportation priorities for consideration by the Missouri Department of Transportation for future funding. The OTO Board of Directors will consider this list at its Thursday, October 17, 2019 Board Meeting. These priorities will help inform the selection of projects for the FY 2021 to 2024 Transportation Improvement Program, but will also not be the only source of projects selected for funding. The public is also encouraged to provide feedback on this list by noon on Thursday, October 17, 2019.
