Public Input: FY 2020-2023 Transportation Improvement Program

The FY 2020-2023 Transportation Improvement Program is currently being developed.  The Transportation Improvement Program is a listing of projects proposed for federal, state and local funding over the next four years for the OTO area which includes seven cities and two counties.  Funding is proposed for aviation, bicycle and pedestrian, roadway and transit projects.  We are asking citizens to provide the OTO with comments and concerns about needed transportation projects in the next four years, Oct. 1, 2019 – Sept. 30, 2023.  The input will be shared with our member communities and our Board of Directors, documenting the transportation needs in the Springfield Metropolitan area.

  1. Please don’t even have the far left lane on a highway end with a merge especially at an exit on ramp. I’ve driven from ozark to kearney St in Springfield and the traffic has never been worse that what it is right now. You made 4 lanes of traffic converge into 2. People of Missouri that haven’t driven in big cities do not know what to do when a left lane ends. My 17 minute drive time has increased to at least 30-45min. I don’t even want to think about the amount of fuel I’ve wasted. I get it probably has something to do with Leaving Greene County and entering Christian. And I’m glad to see work is starting now to extend that 3rd lane. Looking back something better could have been done.
