KANSAS CITY, Missouri – The Missouri Department of Transportation has announced the public comment period for the list of regional and community transportation projects that will accompany the transportation measure on the August ballot.

The official public comment period will begin at at noon Friday, June 13 and will close at 5 p.m., Friday, June 20.

This August, Missouri voters will be asked to decide on a ballot measure, Amendment 7, to temporarily raise the sales tax by ¾ of a cent with all proceeds going toward needed transportation improvements statewide. The public will have an opportunity to weigh in on their regional and community project lists through a series of forums this June. A final schedule of open house meetings and a project website where Missourians can provide feedback will be announced soon.

Missourians will now be asked to provide final public comment on the regional priorities. MoDOT engineers and members of the local transportation planning commission will be available to solicit feedback on the potential projects and answer any questions members of the public may have about the projects. The final list of regional priorities and the public comments received will be submitted to the Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission (MHTC) for approval on Wednesday, June 25.
