Will Missouri Replace I-70 with a 21st Century Interstate?

Next year could lead to the first actual use of FHWA’s pilot program to toll-finance the reconstruction of an Interstate highway—I-70 in Missouri. Gov. Jay Nixon has asked the state’s Transportation Commission and Missouri DOT to report back by the first of the year on a toll-financed reconstruction and widening plan for that aging Interstate. But unless the governor, MoDOT, and AASHTO do a better job of making the case, I fear this new attempt may go down in flames, as did a 2012 effort that was rejected by the state Senate.
