SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- The Ozarks Transportation Organization wants to know which direction you think it should move.

The Transportation Input Initiative held three meetings across the area Tuesday night in Springfield, Republic and Strafford.

Several representatives from the City and MoDOT took part.

They want feedback on your transportation priorities and are asking for suggestions that could turn into future projects.

Organizers say they want ideas on any kind of transportation.

"We are interested in everything from highways to roads and bicycles, pedestrian path sidewalks, transit systems, which we have here,” says Sarah Fields, with OTO. "We've had a lot of participation on our website so far. The biggest thing being talked about is the expansion of James River Freeway to six lanes."

More meetings are scheduled for Thursday. The group is also asking for feedback on its website.
