The Missouri Deparment of Transportation (MoDOT), as a way of promoting the idea of truck-only lanes for I-70, has placed a propaganda video on YouTube to sell the idea to the general public.
As part of the Corridors of the Future program, MoDOT is conducting a study into the possiblity of relieving traffic on I-70 by building dedicated lanes for freight traffic.
The video certainly explains why I-70 is important to global trade, although it inexplicably assumes this is also good for people in general. It also bemoans the lack of funding for the project, probably to prep people for increased transportation taxes or tolls.
