Faced with a severe decline in funding for transportation and the inability to match federal funds in the near future, the Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission on June 8, 2011 adopted a plan that includes reducing the size of the Missouri Department of Transportation’s staff by 1,200, closing 131 facilities and selling more than 740 pieces of equipment. By 2015, the proposed direction will save $512 million that will be used for vital road and bridge projects.
