About Us

The Federal Highway Administration Missouri Division (FHWA) provides Stewardship and Oversight to the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) and local governments in the design, construction, and maintenance of the Federal Aid Highway Program (FAHP). Through financial and technical assistance, the FHWA is responsible for ensuring that America's roads and highways continue to be among the safest and most technologically sound in the world.

Missouri received approximately $1.28B in apportioned funds for FY 2023. This money is directed to the design and construction of major capital additions and improvements to Missouri's highway system and intermodal connectors.

The delivery of the 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. The Stewardship and Oversight (S&O) Agreement between FHWA and MoDOT sets forth the roles and responsibilities of FHWA and MoDOT with respect to Title 23 project approvals and related responsibilities, and FAHP oversight activities.
