JEFFERSON CITY — The Missouri Department of Transportation is getting national recognition for auctioning off excess state property.
The department announced the special recognition from the Federal Highway Administration on Tuesday. The recognition is for innovative property management through the department's Realty to Roads program.
Last year, MoDOT sold 228 parcels of unneeded land and raised more than $4.2 million for state highway improvements through the sales.
The department will hold an auction April 26-30 for 32 parcels of land ranging in size from a quarter-acre to 200 acres.
