portsPlanes, Trains and Bicycles?

Did you know that MoDOT is responsible for more than just our roadways? Many forms of transportation fall under MoDOT's umbrella, including aviation, rail, transit, freight, waterways, and our bicycle and the pedestrian program.

For example, did you know, ports are economic engines? Missouri’s port facilities are much like industrial parks where billions of dollars worth of goods can be transferred from one transportation mode to another. The most efficient facilities are capable of transferring commodities between barge, railcar and truck.

The ports directly employ hundreds of Missourians, with hundreds more working on barges, in transportation sales and other associated jobs.

There is great information on all these other forms of transportation on MoDOT's website. Go to and click "Other Transportation". You're sure to find something interesting!

mapA Road for the Perceptive: A Look Back at Route 65
Bob Dylan may have said it best in his popular 1964 song, "The Times They Are A-Changin'." With the introduction of the Internet and social media, communication is about getting the message out fast and keeping it short so it will be read. That means the story of a Missouri road isn't something that would pop up on your Twitter or Facebook feeds.

In 1970, an 11 page booklet titled "A Road for the Perceptive" was published by MoDOT, telling the story of Route 65. The booklet takes a poetic view of Route 65 and tells its story through Missouri from Arkansas to Iowa.

Since the 318 miles of Route 65 would be a challenge to Snapchat, take a moment and read this 1970's view and learn about the story of Route 65 from an interesting perspective.

Read the entire story as a PDF document here - "A Road for the Perceptive."

Please note – the PDF file is large and difficult to view on mobile devices. Viewing on a desktop computer is recommended.
