A bill being proposed for the 2023 Legislative Session could open the door to widening Interstate 70.
State Senator Bill Eigel of Weldon Spring pre-filed the bill, proposing that general revenue funds exceeding $4 Billion Dollars be transferred into the Interstate 70 improvement fund…giving the state what it needs to widen I-70 into 3 lanes each way.
Currently Missouri has a budget surplus of $6 Billion dollars.
The improved highway would coincide with the rebuilding of the Kingdom City interchange, making travel from the major cities to the Lake of the Ozarks seamless.
The Missouri 2023 Legislative Session will begin on January 4th.
