Federal Funding of Missouri Bike/Ped Projects

Please act today to save federal funding of bicycling and walking. The primary source of funding for MIssouri projects is once again on the chopping block.  Great projects like Monett Greenway, Page Avenue Bridge, Bike St. Louis, Heart of America Bridge, Frisco Highline Trail, and sidewalks in dozens of Missouri towns have benefited from the Transportation Enhancements Program.

Transportation Enhancements is the main source of funding for bicycling and walking in Missouri and it is in jeopardy in the US Senate.
