We are responsible for administering the return of the Federal Highway Trust Fund (about $650 million per year most of which are Federal gasoline taxes) back to the State of Missouri through the Missouri Department of Transportation.
In essence, this money is directed to the design and construction of major capital additions and improvements to Missouri's highway system and intermodal connectors.
However, the delivery of this design and construction program requires FHWA's active involvement in many facets of administration and oversight. These facets include funding reimbursement, innovative financing, civil rights, statewide and metropolitan planning, research, technology development and transfer, major investment studies, environmental evaluations, rights of way acquisition, safety programs, highway and bridge design reviews, construction inspections, maintenance reviews, quality improvement reviews, and technical assistance.
This site has a wealth of information and links on transportation projects in Missouri as well as around the country.
