State transportation officials and community leaders from all over the state are putting their heads together in Jefferson City to determine which of the 59 road and bridge construction projects under consideration will make the cut and be presented to the State Highway Commission. The Commission is expected to make a final determination on which of the selected projects will be built with $1.3-Billion in Amendment Three money. MoDOT Spokesman Jeff Briggs says this is a much more publicly-involved selection process that in the past, and one the Department hopes to continue for the future. All 59 projects were ranked as high, middle, and low priorities two months ago. Briggs says some high priorities will be built, but so will some middle and low priorities. He says the group will select whatever fits best into the budget.
