Missouri DOT’s MoDOT Minute: Potholes & Amtrak

Posted by Content Coordinator on Friday, March 18th, 2011

With warmer weather comes the melting and refreezing that is the main cause of those potholes we see popping up on our roadways. MoDOT crews routinely scout for potholes and make temporary repairs to the pavement. Permanent fixes using a more durable type of asphalt have to wait for summer weather. To report potholes, visit MoDOT’s website at http://www.modot.org/ and click on “Report a Road Concern” or call the department’s toll-free number, 1-888-275-6636.

As fuel prices continue to rise, so do the number of passengers on the Missouri River Runner. In fact, a heightened demand for seats recently caused Amtrak to add two additional cars on the St. Louis to Kansas City run. Since June, the Missouri River Runner has seen a jump in passengers of nearly 16 percent. Amtrak ridership nationwide is up 6 percent. For fares and other information, visit www.morail.org.
