ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) – Officials with the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) will meet Wednesday to provide updates on several issues impacting state roads.

A recent inspection found that 641 bridges in Missouri are in need of repairs.

Officials said they do not have enough money to fix the state’s crumbling roads. Earlier this year, MoDOT unveiled a budget plan which will drop funding $325 million, from its current $700 million, starting in July 2016.

News 4 will be at Wednesday’s meeting to see what the agency’s plan is moving forward.
