MoDOT engineer to speak at City Council Lunch

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Becky Baltz, Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) southwest district engineer, will speak to Springfield City Council at noon, Tuesday, March 3, 2015 in the Busch Municipal Building, 840 N. Boonville. Baltz will provide information on Missouri’s 325 System, a new plan to limit maintenance to primary routes due to expected financial shortfalls. In 2017, MoDOT’s construction funding will drop to $325 million. In the future, Springfieldians could see a significant difference in the condition of MoDOT roads through the city, says Dan Smith, Springfield Public Works Director. Local roads maintained by MoDOT, such as Glenstone, Sunshine, Kearney, Chestnut, Kansas and West Bypass are considered supplementary and will receive only limited routine maintenance work. These roads could become a patchwork of repairs over the coming years. Also, in 2017, Missouri will not have enough money to match federal funds. Federal funds provide a $4 to $1 investment that Missouri will lose. Springfield has benefitted by matching funds in cost-share arrangements with MoDOT on such high-profile projects as the overpass at James River Freeway and Highway 65 and Battlefield Road/Route 65 Diverging Diamond/Bridge Project. For more information, contact Cora Scott, Director of Public Information & Civic Engagement, at 417-380-3352.
