MoDOT is now taking applications for eligible projects through November 5, 2012. Applications and program information can be obtained by contactingMoDOT Transportation Project Designer Chad Zickefoose at 417.895.7638. The Transportation Enhancement Fund guidelines and application can be found online by visiting MoDOT's Southwest District website at www.modot.mo.gov/southwest .
The money in the federal program can only be used for projects related to transportation and cannot be used on public or private roads.
