Public comment period opens on 2025-2029 draft STIP


The draft 2025-2029 Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) was presented to the Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission May 1, kicking off a 30-day public review and comment period. 

The draft STIP makes available $13.8 billion of federal and state revenues for all modes of transportation over the next five years. Of the $13.8 billion, the draft STIP details $9.9 billion in road and bridge construction contractor awards, averaging about $2 billion per year. It also contains programming details for the remaining $2.4 billion of general revenue for the Improve I-70 program, which in full includes $2.8 billion for the costs to plan, design, construct, reconstruct, rehabilitate and repair three lanes in each direction on nearly 200 miles of the Interstate 70 corridor.  In the past 10 years, the Missouri Department of Transportation and its construction partners have completed 4,206 projects with a program value of $11.1 billion, but it was delivered $536 million below budget and 93% on time, said officials.

“The investments made in this year’s STIP fund another 1,400 projects providing transportation improvements to communities across the state,” said MoDOT Director Patrick McKenna. “The General Assembly and the governor’s continued support with general revenue addresses previously unfunded needs that provide safety and economic benefits to all Missourians.”

The draft lists transportation projects planned by state and regional planning agencies for fiscal years 2025-2029 (July 1, 2024 through June 30, 2029) and reflects the transportation needs of communities across the state.

The proposed program is available for public review. Those interested in seeing the program or offering comments can contact MoDOT by email at STIPcomments@modot.mo.gov, by calling customer service at 888-ASK-MoDOT (888-275-6636) or by sending mail to Transportation Planning, Program Comments, P.O. Box 270, Jefferson City, MO 65102. The program is also available on MoDOT's website: modot.org/DRAFTSTIP. The formal comment period ends May 30.

The summary of comments will be presented to the Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission following the public review period. After reviewing the summary of comments and the final transportation program, it will be considered for approval at the July 10 MHTC meeting.
