Working together l.jpg
Working Together

  • Missouri is the “Show Me State”

  • We need to see to accept

  • Several Missouri state agencies were involved

  • MoDOT, DOC, DNR, DNR Parks

  • DNR is the central contact

Central contact l.jpg
Central Contact

  • One central state contact

  • Everyone was kept informed

  • Easier to work with DOE and for DOE to work with the agencies

  • MoDOT concerned with protecting our employees and the public
