What We Do

Focus Area Discussions

Eight Communities of Interest meet regularly to discuss issues related to improvement and maintenance of Missouri’s transportation system within the context of each community’s focus area. Those focus areas include:

  • Economic Development
  • Education & Research
  • Freight
  • Industry Advancement & Diversity
  • Innovation
  • Roads & Bridges
  • Safety
  • Total Transportation

These discussions generate information and ideas related to the current state of Missouri’s transportation system within each of these focus areas as well as recommendations for future action.
