Lawmakers Discuss Upgrading I-70

Boone County Democratic State Representative Adrian Plank says he’d like to see the Legislature commit to a plan to upgrade I-70 from Kansas City to St. Louis this session.

Republican Danny Busick of Newtown says even though the highway doesn’t go through his district, he supports rebuilding it.

Plank says he’d like a major commitment all at once, rather than doing it in pieces.

Busick wants to see new ideas as part of any proposal.

MoDOT is actively working on a plan to upgrade the interchange with Highway 63 in Columbia.
