(KMOV) – On Friday, the Missouri Highways and Transportation commission plans to outline a list of projects and improvements that could improve safety, create jobs and boost Missouri’s economy if voters approve tax hikes.

MoDOT plans to release Hundreds of plans for transportation projects possible throughout the state. Missourians will have three weeks to review and comment to the commission on the plans ahead before a final list is approved in July.

If approved, a three fourths of a cent sales tax hike would provide an estimated $5.4 billion in funding for transportation projects over 10 years.

MoDOT estimated $48 million annually will go toward state transportation initiatives. An estimated $54 million annually, will be split among cities and counties for transportation projects.

The sales tax on medicine, groceries and gasoline would not be part of this tax hike if approved.
