Transportation Planning

Transportation Advisory Council (TAC)

The NEMO RPC partners with local stakeholders including city and county elected officials, business and industry leaders as well as at-large members of the public, to work on prioritizing transportation needs in the six counties of the region for consideration in the MoDOT maintenance, construction and budget processes.

MoDOT Construction Project Need Rankings

The NEMO RPC TAC members utilize custom data sheets for all projects considered for prioritization. Each project identified as a potential need can be weighed utilizing a variety of statistics including traffic volume; pavement quality; deck, sub-structure and super-structure rankings for bridges; traffic crash statistics; heavy truck traffic; and more.

Transportation Work Plan / Public Documents

The NEMO RPC annually produces a transportation work plan highlighting short-term and long-range planning goals related to the regional transportation program. The regional public transit and Title VI plans can be found here as well as other transportation related public documents generated and maintained by the NEMO RPC.

Roadway Safety

As a member of the Missouri Coalition for Roadway Safety, the NEMO RPC takes a role in the partnership of safety advocates throughout the state who have come together with the goal to end traffic fatalities and serious injuries on public roadways.

Multimodal Transportation

Transportation talk often centers on roads and bridges, but the NEMO RPC assists member communities in meeting needs related to waterways, ports, aviation, rail, sidewalks, trails, bikes, freight movement, and much more.



State and federal funding, regulations, guidelines... by the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT), and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), are central to the local planning process.
