A new report that evaluates the current condition, use and funding of Missouri’s transportation system will be released at a news conference in Kansas City at 10:00 a.m. on Thursday, April 28.
The report, “Future Mobility in Missouri: Meeting the State’s Need for Safe and Efficient Mobility,” analyzes road and bridge conditions, traffic congestion, economic development and job creation, highway safety, and transportation funding in Missouri. TRIP’s report finds that although improvements have been made to the state’s transportation system in recent years, those gains could be stalled or reversed in the coming years as state spending on needed projects decreases sharply. TRIP is a national nonprofit transportation research group based in Washington, DC.
TRIP’s Carolyn Bonifas will present the findings of the report at the news conference. Local officials will also be on hand to comment on the report.
