MoDOT has a new one-stop website for road conditions
JEFFERSON CITY - MoDOT web visitors now have a one-stop location to find the latest updates on road and bridge conditions.
"The 325 Report" on MoDOT's website launched early Monday morning.
This website features videos, profiles of MoDOT employees, feature profiles on engaged community citizens and a variety of supporting materials to keep people informed on Missouri's road and bridge conditions.
MoDOT Communications Manager Matt Hiebert said the website was created so viewers would have an easier time finding what they need regarding Missouri transportation.
"Now they have one stop," Hiebert said. "Whether they want a system update, whether they want to hear what other people are saying or whether they want to give their own personal story on transportation; they'll now have one stop to go to where they can get all that."
In February, Missouri was faced with a significant budget reduction for road construction and improvementt.
In response, the Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission adopted "Missouri's 325 System," to focus on MoDOT's limited resources of funding.
The Missouri 325 System is a plan to focus MoDOT's limited resources by dividing Missouri's highways into primary and supplementary routes.
Primary routes include about 8,000 miles of Missouri roads that could be maintained in the condition they are today. Supplementary routes are the approximated 26,000 miles of Missouri roads remaining that would receive limited maintenance.
These roads will continute to degrade overtime which could be a concern for Missouri drivers.
Hiebert said the new website is important because it will keep updates on these specific roads if conditions worsen.
He also said MoDOT will continue to update the website with any updates on funding discussion as it moves forward.
