The Missouri Department of Transportation is working with the Missouri Transportation Alliance to try to come up with a long term plan to fund highway construction. Kirk Juranas is the MoDOT Central Missouri District Engineer and says the department is trimming the fat in preparation for a new plan.
Juranas says current funding is pulled from several sources.
Juranas says the goal is to have a long term funding strategy before the public and the state legislature in 2014. He says public input is needed before any funding is discussed.
