Missouri: Citizen’s Guide to Transportation Funding

Posted by Joe Gentle on Wednesday, December 21st, 2016

Transportation funding in MissouriThe many layers of transportation policy and funding are murky at best, and many times downright impenetrable. Fortunately for a few of us, the Missouri Department of Transportation recently created an online tool to make funding, legislation and project selection transparent and easy to understand.

The “Citizen’s Guide to Transportation Funding in Missouri” aims to explains the state’s revenue, expenditures, projects and needs in layman’s terms accompanied by helpful graphics. Missourians can use the transportation calculator to find out just how much they’re paying into the pot; they can read about the federal component of transportation funding; they can find out about the current conditions of Missouri’s transportation systems, and what they state most urgently needs.

If other state DOTs (and USDOT) follow suit, we could be living in a very different transportation climate. With easy access to knowledge like this, citizens can more easily participate in transportation and infrastructure discussions, and help shape policy in meaningful ways.
