The future needs and challenges facing Missouri’s transportation system will be the subject of a series of public forums across the state this spring and summer.

The Blue Ribbon Committee is a 21-member panel of business leaders, contractors and special interest groups from across the state. 

“The purpose of the committee is to examine Missouri’s current and future transportation needs and explore possible solutions,” said Speaker Tilley. “We need to start a conversation with all Missouri citizens to make sure our transportation system can function at a level that will foster economic growth and handle growing traffic safely and efficiently.” 

Working with the Missouri Department of Transportation, Tilley’s Blue Ribbon Citizens Committee has scheduled public meetings around the state to gather information from citizens and stakeholders.
