Main Page Welcome.jpg
MoDOT’s three pillars of “Safety, Service and Stability” steer our leadership and employees. Our commitment to safety includes keeping both customers and ourselves safe. Our service includes providing outstanding customer service, delivering transportation solutions of great value and using resources wisely. Keeping roads and bridges in good condition, operating a reliable and convenient transportation system, and advancing Missouri’s economic development reflect our commitment to stability.
Innovative concepts, such as Practical Design and design-build, are used to deliver our commitments. These and other forward-thinking concepts shape the content of the ENGINEERING POLICY GUIDE (EPG). This document provides a single reference for all engineering and engineering-related Bridge, Construction, Design, Highway Safety & Traffic, Maintenance, Planning and Right of Way guidance.
