JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — The Missouri Department of Transportation is facing an extremely tight budget this year and motorists could see the effects.

“It is not a good year for MoDOT,” MoDOT Chief Financial Officer Roberta Broeker said.

The Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission heard a dismal budget proposal from MoDOT at a meeting on Wednesday. It’s the smallest proposed since 2005.

Taking the biggest hit are construction projects, proposed at half a billion dollars less than 2010, meaning there is little room for expansion or improvement projects.

The 2014 budget will be approved at the beginning of June.
