Construction Beginning on 40+ Miles of Roads
MACON COUNTY - MoDOT will begin constructon on more than 41 miles of roads in Macon and Randolph counties Tuesday morning.
The construction will affect routes C, M, B, Mo. 3 and Business Route 36.
The construction comes as the Federal Governments's Highway Trust Fund announced it's going bankrupt, and MoDOT is struggling to find its own revenue.
President Obama signed the Surface Transportation Extension Act of 2012 at the end of March, which will extend funding for the Highway Trust Fund for 90 days.
The Congressional Budget Office says the fund will be insolvent by 2014.
