MO (KAIT) - The Missouri Department of Transportation will be asking for input from Missourians about the state's transportation system over the next few months.

MoDOT is launching "On the Move",  an effort to update Missouri's long-term transportation plan through a series of listening sessions, a mobile tour and virtual forums.

The "On The Move" website launched Friday at www.missourionthemove.org. Visitors to the site can learn about the assets of Missouri's transportation system, track what MoDOT is hearing from Missourians, keep track of "On The Move" events, and comment on the specific projects they think are needed.

"Missouri transportation begins with Missouri citizens – the very people who use our roads and bridges, railways, greenways, waterways and airways to travel to and from work, to the doctor, to soccer practice and everywhere in between," says MoDOT Chief Engineer Dave Nichols. "Engaging Missourians to provide input is a critical step to ensure that MoDOT outlines a sustainable and economically viable transportation vision that serves the growing needs of Missourians well into the future."

The first two listening sessions are scheduled for February 5 in Columbia from 6-8 p.m. at the Reynolds Alumni Center, and February 19 in Cape Girardeau from 5-7 p.m. at the Osage Center. 

The general public and transportation stakeholders are invited to attend, but due to limited seating, interested persons must register to secure a seat by RSVPing here. Registration closes at noon the day prior to each listening session.

Feb. 5                  Columbia

Feb. 19                Cape Girardeau

Feb. 21, 26, 28    St. Louis/St. Charles
