Northeastern Missourians should know about new transportation projects coming.

After years of work by local planning agencies, Missourians are now asked to weigh in on a list of projects and improvements that could improve safety, create jobs and boost Missouri's economy. Two open house meetings in Northeast Missouri will be held to share thoughts and to ask questions. Those meetings will be held Wednesday, June 11 from 4 to 7 at Mark twain Museum in downtown Hannibal, and Thursday, June 12 from 4 to 7 at Truman State University in Kirksville.

On August 5, Missouri voters will decide on Constitutional Amendment 7, a ballot measure to temporarily raise Missouri's sales tax by 3/4 of a cent. All proceeds from the tax would go toward needed transportation improvements across the state of Missouri. For more information go online to
