Nice to see someone who understands.
There is no question MoDot knew the I-70 bed needed rebuilt as this is what is done to maintain and improve highways. They did a complete rebuild of the I-35 bed north of Kansas City. However, when they did have more funding, they ignored I-70 and the need to rebuild a bed. This is inexcusable and their desire to hold the state hostage for addition revenue should be criminal. Jay Nixon does nothing to actually improve the state (approximate $200 million dollars to make MU's football good enough to suit the SEC....) and has allowed MoDot to run as a gang of thugs with no consequences.
As for Highway 13, if MoDot's pet projects of the bypass and traffic circle are so great, why is the city of Warrensburg congested? It comes down to the fact that people are not using the by pass. If this is due to MoDOt's piss poor planning of putting the bypass so far east of town, the excessive number of traffic circles, or the project not being complete remains to be seen.
