I attended a public hearing in Jefferson City where Missouri Department of Transportation officials promised members of the Missouri Senate that MoDOT would include bicycling and walking facilities in every project around the state where appropriate.
MoDOT recently presented its plans for Route 45 through an area of Parkville lined with homes, apartments and businesses. Not a bike lane, path or sidewalk is in sight.
Can we trust MoDOT to keep its word when what it says and what it does are so different?
