Welcome to the Northwest District

Moving Forward

After years of work by local planning agencies and transportation partners, Missourians are now asked to weigh in on a list of transportation projects and improvements that could improve safety, create jobs, and boost Missouri's economy.

The Missouri Department of Transportation has coordinated three open house meetings in Northwest Missouri to ask residents to take a look at the local priorities and share their thoughts and insights.

On August 5, Missouri voters will decide on ConstitutionalAmendment 7, a ballot measure to temporarily raise Missouri's sales tax by ¾ of a cent. All proceeds from the tax would go toward needed transportation improvements across the state. The amendment's provisions include the creation of a project list prior to the election so Missourians can see what their tax dollars would fund.

The public is invited to attend the meetings at any time during the advertised hours to speak to regional planning partners and MoDOT representatives. No formal presentations will be made. The public meetings are scheduled as follows:

  • Tuesday, June 17, 2014 - Maryville Parks and Recreation Community Center, 1407 N. Country Club Road, Maryville, MO, 4 to 7 p.m.
  • Wednesday, June 18, 2014 - Green Acres Building, 3500 N. Village Drive, St. Joseph, MO, 4 to 7 p.m.
  • Thursday, June 19, 2014 - Bethany Community Center, 105 N. 25th Street, Bethany, MO, 4 to 6 p.m.

There are multiple open house meetings scheduled in each region of the state. The entire public meeting schedule, the draft transportation improvement list, and an online comment form are available at noon on June 13 at www.modot.org/movingforward or by clicking the Moving Forward banner above.
