Coalition forming to advocate for U.S. 65 improvements

Posted online
Stakeholders representing communities and organizations along the U.S. 65 corridor from Trenton south to Springfield will hold a public meeting Tuesday in Sedalia.

The purpose of the meeting, scheduled for 11:30 a.m. at U.S. Bank, 3615 Broadway in the third floor training room, is to organize a U.S. 65 corridor coalition, to determine desired outcomes for the group and to develop an action plan, according to a news release from the Missouri Department of Transportation. 

“As the communities along U.S. (Highway) 65 have grown and the counties have taken advantage of their key location along this route, the route has started to diversify to include not only tourist-related opportunities, but also other economic opportunities that truly create a major commerce corridor,” Randy Pogue, Warsaw city administrator and planner, said in the release.

Jewell Patek, education coordinator for the Missouri Transportation Alliance, will speak with the group to clarify its priorities for transportation in Missouri. MoTA has communicated with stakeholders and organizations throughout Missouri about its transportation priorities and possible sources for funding the transportation improvements.
