Press Release:

The Missouri Department of Transportation’s Northwest District will be offering six former MoDOT maintenance facilities and properties at auction in December. These properties will be auctioned during a three-day sales event beginning on Wednesday, Dec. 12, through Friday, Dec. 14.These facilities have recently been identified through MoDOT’s Bolder Five Year Direction as no longer necessary to help maintain the highway system. “The revenue generated from the sale of properties across the state is being put back into the road fund,” commented Northwest District Right of Way Manager Bryan Bailey. He added that selling excess right of way also saves maintenance costs, reduces liability and puts the property back on the tax roll to the advantage of local communities.
