Ameren Missouri will build a network of electric charging stations along Interstates 70, 40 and 55 by the end of the year.

Ameren Missouri is among six Midwest utilities planning to build charging stations in several states, including Missouri, Illinois and Oklahoma. The multistate network is expected to be completed by the end of 2022.

As more people rely on electric vehicles, additional charging stations are needed on highways to keep them running, Ameren Missouri officials said.
