Missouri could soon pave the way for the widening of I-44

The Missouri Legislature’s 51.7-billion dollar state budget proposal includes funding to expand Interstate 44 to six lanes in the Joplin, Springfield, and Rolla areas. 

Missouri House Budget Committee Chairman Cody Smith says he’s most proud of this effort in the proposed budget… 

“I think we’ve structured it in a way that is fiscally responsible, that leaves again that healthy bottom line, so that we’re not breaking the bank to do it,” says Smith. 

Governor Mike Parson will decide what stays and what goes in the Missouri Legislature’s state budget proposal.
