The Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission received examples Wednesday, May 6th, of the value of transportation investment and the consequences that come with failing to invest in the state’s roads and bridges.
As part of the program, Cyndra Lorey, Executive Director of Rolla Regional Economic Commission, explained that an interchange project at Interstate 44 and Route V had decreased congestion, improved access to an industrial park and was a critical factor in the expansion of a distribution center that created more than 50 new jobs. She also described the need for other projects that could spur development of retail operations with estimated annual sales of $100 million and creation of more than 400 jobs.
“Transportation is not just getting from point A to point B.” she said, “It’s also about what is provided when you get there.”
Cynda Lorey, Exec. Director for the RREC, hosted a meeting of area economic developers on April 27th to meet with the new Pres/CEO of Missouri Partnership. The group discussed how the Partnership can better serve the non-metropolitan areas in business recruitment.
The meeting was held in the former Briggs & Stratten building thus providing Mr. Johnston the opportunity to tour the facility.
Dan Mehan, Pres/CEO of the Missouri Chamber of Commerce and David Sylvester, District Engineer for MO DOT, were speakers for a special joint meeting of the RREC and The Rolla Area Chamber of Commerce.
