"Oh really, it's not too bad since they put the round-about up here on 43. It's a lot easier," said Daniel Dorris, Missouri Driver.
Dorris says some roads could use some work and the current conditions aren't good on his aging van.
"Make them smoother, a lot of these roads are rough. Like 96 has no shoulder on it," says Dorris.
That's exactly the type of feedback Missouri Department of Transportation officials are looking for as part of their "Missouri on the Move" initiative.
"We just want to contact as many of those 6 million customers and we want them to share with us what they see as key transportation needs," said Dan Salisbury, MoDOT Assistant Southwest District Engineer.
Missouri has 33,000 miles of roadway, which is more than Kansas and Illinois combined. That means MoDOT officials maintain the 7th largest highway system in the nation.
"We're doing a pretty darn good job on our busier roadways. Statewide, 88% are in smooth condition. In Southwest Missouri, 95% of our busier roadways are smooth," says Salisbury.
Drivers like Dorris say they're already noticing MoDOT's efforts.
"Now Kansas roads are a lot worse than Missouri roads, I think. Because once you leave Kansas and get into Missouri, Missouri roads are a lot smoother," says Dorris.
MoDOT officials say there is still time to give feedback by filling out a virtual form on their website. Officials will gather all the feedback until April and hope to release a strategic plan for upcoming road projects by early summer. To view their website, click here.
