The Missouri Department of Transportation will hold meetings in October with its planning partners in each of its seven districts for a general discussion on the current condition of the state transportation system, how MoDOT currently spends its resources to take care of transportation assets that would cost an estimated $125 billion to replace, and how additional funding resulting from Proposition D could best be used to consider regional priorities, if voters approve the measure in November.

These meetings, which are open to the public, will lay the groundwork for the development of the next Statewide Transportation Improvement program that will set MoDOT's construction commitments for 2020-24 and which will be presented in draft form to the Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission in May 2019, according to a MoDOT news release.

A meeting will be at 12:30 p.m. Oct. 9 at McClung Park Indoor Pavilion in Jefferson City.
