Gate Way Group’s Managing Partner David Jackson detailed the funding problem with Missouri roads and bridges on ABC 30’s Allman Report Thursday evening. “Less than 10% of Missouri voters think our roads are in bad shape,” said Jackson. “School buses are driving across deficient bridges every day and parents have no idea.”
According to the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT), 26,000 miles of Missouri roadway could go unmaintained if a new source of funding isn’t identified before 2017. MoDOT has also released data that shows it would cost at least $1 billion to repair over 800 deficient bridges across the state.
The Gate Way Group is a top ranked lobbying firm based in St. Louis, Missouri.
