MoDOT Highway 47

People look at the maps of unfunded Missouri Department of Transportation projects Dec. 7 at the Forest Park Visitors Center.  In Franklin County, the widening of Highway 47 is a Tier One and Tier Two project, and a project along Highway 100 is in Tier Three.

Wednesday’s meeting hosted by the Missouri Department of Transportation may have been in St. Louis’ Forest Park, but one of the meeting’s biggest topics was a stretch of roadway in Franklin County. 

“They highlighted two projects at that meeting, and one of them was widening Highway 47. I thought that was just phenomenal to hear them talk about Highway 47 being one of their priorities,” said Washington Community and Economic Development Director Sal Maniaci, who attended the meeting along with City Administrator Darren Lamb and Public Works Director John Nilges.
