(KMOV) –The Missouri Department of Transportation on Monday will hold two open houses educate residents on a list of transportation project proposals.

On Friday, MoDOT announced 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.

One of Monday night’s meetings will be held in the Mid-County Library in Clayton from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. The other will take place at the Arnold Recreation Center from 5 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.

While no former presentation will be made, attendees will get their first chance to speak to regional planning partners and MoDOT representatives.

 

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