When Missourians head to the polls on Aug. 5, they will know exactly what their tax dollars will bring to the state if they approve Constitutional Amendment 7.

That's because the Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission today approved a list of hundreds of transportation projects that represents the commission's commitment to Missourians who want to invest in the state's transportation future.

"This list is the culmination of years of work, with collaboration from local transportation planners as well as input from thousands of citizens from across the state," said Commission Chair Stephen Miller. "It represents a substantial investment in Missouri's transportation infrastructure - but also means safer roads, more jobs, and a better economy."

The list includes $4.8 billion in transportation projects. While the majority of work focuses on Missouri's roads and bridges, it also incorporates other modes of transportation.

"One of the most impressive things about this list is the expanse of work it covers and the real, tangible value you can see for your money," said MoDOT Director Dave Nichols. "It includes resurfacing thousands of miles of roads, improving ports, railroads and airports, and even provides additional OATS service throughout rural regions of the state."

Ultimately, the delivery of projects outlined in this priorities list will go a long way toward fixing roads and bridges where Missouri's system is already in bad condition. The end result of this work would affect Missourians in every region of the state and help meet the goals set forth in last year's long range transportation plan.

The entire transportation improvement list and information about the amendment are available at www.modot.org/movingforward.

On Aug. 5, Missouri voters will decide on Amendment 7, a ballot measure to temporarily raise Missouri's sales tax by ¾ of a cent. All proceeds from the 10-year tax would go toward much-needed transportation improvements across the state. The amendment's provisions include the creation of a project list prior to the election so Missourians can see what their tax dollars would fund.
