SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – Missouri’s lieutenant governor was in Springfield tonight to urge citizens to vote yes on Proposition D next Tuesday.
Kehoe says one major feature of the legislation: safer roads and safer streets.
But to do work across the whole state will cost money.
“Missouri has the seventh largest infrastructure when it comes to center miles and bridges,” Kehoe said. “That’s 10,400 bridges and 32,000 miles of road. As a matter of fact, when you look at our major river crossings, and that’s major describing a thousand footbridges or longer, we have 207 of those and that is number one in the state. Just those 207 are $7 billion worth of our bridges.”
OTC President Hal Higdon, along with Springfield schools superintendent, John Jungmann, were also at the meeting tonight to support Prop. D.
