Missouri updates project list for transportation tax
JEFFERSON CITY (AP) - Missouri officials have revised the project list that would be funded by a proposed three-quarters cent sales tax on the August ballot.
The updated project list was released Monday to The Associated Press in response to an open-records request that sought cost estimates for each of the more than 800 projects.
The Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission is to vote Wednesday on the projects to be funded by the proposed Constitutional Amendment 7.
Additions to the draft list include state funding for streetcars in Kansas City, contingent upon approval of local dollars.
The widening of Interstate 70 across Missouri remains the most expensive item, followed by interstate improvements in the St. Louis area and the widening of parts of U.S. 63 and U.S. 50 in central Missouri.
