(Jefferson County) The Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) Commission will vote on to approve or deny several road projects planned by state and regional planning agencies for fiscal years 2022 through 2026.

The planned projects are all part of MoDOT’s Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP).

The addition of a third lane on I-55 north and southbound from Route Z to Highway 67 is one of the projects on the draft.
