JEFFERSON CITY — The Missouri Department of Transportation has eliminated 201 positions since the end of February.

Earlier this year, state transportation officials said they planned to save more than $200 million over the next five years and to eliminate 400 positions by June 2013. The agency says it is on pace to hit both targets.

MoDOT Interim Director Kevin Keith says the transportation agency also has found $64 million to repair pavement on lettered and rural highways. The agency also is looking for ways to be more efficient with its maintenance, snow removal, mowing and road striping.
