Funding was recently approved for MoDOT to construct a new maintenance building in Keytesville. Representative Peggy McGaugh of Carrollton says construction of this new building has been a long time coming.

McGaugh represents portions of Carroll, Chariton, and Ray counties. Funds for the new MoDOT building will come from their building and fleet fund. McGaugh details the building project.

The construction of the new building is one of just two such projects scheduled to take place in the northwest region of Missouri.
