Missouri officials have approved a list of more than 800 projects that would be funded if voters approve a sales tax for transportation on the August ballot.
The list endorsed Wednesday by the Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission totals $4.8 billion over a decade for state roads, bridges and other modes of transportation.
Local governments also would get a share of the proposed three-quarters cent sales tax for their own transportation projects.
The state list includes 330 new or improved bridges and 3,255 miles of resurfacing on roads.
