The Missouri Department of Transportation is hosting a series of public meetings to “share information” about its plans for a study on the environmental impacts of building truck-only lanes for I-70, as per the state’s Corridors of the Future grant. The meetings are in “open house” format, so people can arrive and leave at any time. The schedule is:
• Wed., April 2: Warrenton, Mo.; 4:30 to 7 p.m.; Warren County Outreach & Extension Center; 107 W. Walton
