MoDOT selling 104 acres near Jerome
JEROME, Mo. (Feb. 2, 2009) — Missouri Department of Transportation officials announced Friday that they plan “an aggressive approach” to selling excess property they no longer need, with the funds directed into road and bridge projects.

The parcels range from less than an acre to more than 160 acres. None are in Pulaski County, but a 104-acre parcel is just across the county line near Jerome, northwest of the BNSF railroad crossing with Interstate 44.

Maps of that parcel can be found online at http://www.modot.org/realtyforsale/documents/PhelpsCo104acres2.pdf.

According to a MoDOT press release, the transportation department acquires land to build, improve and maintain the highway system, but some of that land is no longer needed as MoDOT plans change.

“We want to provide the best value we can to Missouri taxpayers by selling our excess property and using the proceeds for highway improvements,” wrote Kelly Lucas, director of MoDOT’s Right of Way Division. “Our new Realty to Roads initiative will help us manage the property we own more effectively and efficiently.”

During the 2008 fiscal year, MoDOT officials sold 112 properties for $4.4 million. The new Realty to Roads project works under contract with two private companies, White and Associates of Kansas City and Richard C. Shepard Real Estate Strategies from the St. Louis suburb of Chesterfield to help MoDOT sell the land parcels.

An initial list of the excess property offered for sale can be found on the MoDOT website at http://www.modot.org/realtyforsale.
