Regional Road Projects In SEMPO TIP Amendment No. 4 Open To Public Viewing And Comment Until July 21

The Southeast Metropolitan Planning Organization has released its four-year Transportation Improvement Program amendment, also known as a TIP amendment, for road projects in the region. The current amendment includes all projects MoDOT has planned for its statewide program.


Cape Girardeau City Planner Ryan Shrimplin says under Missouri law, new state projects or changes within SEMPO’s planning area must be incorporated into their TIP amendment.


“This current amendment, once that’s approved by the simple board of directors, that is then submitted back to the state for the governor's approval,” explains Shrimplin.


Some projects included are pavement improvements to I-55, the Bill Emerson Memorial Bridge, and outer road State Highway 61. Residents can submit comments and concerns to SEMPO by July 21.

Cape Girardeau City Hall, 401 Independence Street Cape Girardeau, MO
