Lake area residents are being asked to weigh in on a list of transportation projects and improvements that officials say could improve safety, create jobs and boost the state’s economy. Starting tomorrow a list of proposed projects will be released by the Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission. At their meeting this week, the commission heard MoDot’s progress report on the creation of the list and decided to extend the public comment period until July 3rd. The commission will review all comments and approve the list on July 9th. Voters will then decide the fate of a proposed sales tax increase in August which would fund the proposed projects. if approved, it would be the highest tax increase in Missouri History.
