The Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT — pronounced "MO-dot") is a state government organization in charge of maintaining public roadways of the U.S. state of Missouri under the guidance of the Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission. Its mission is to provide a world-class transportation system that is safe, innovative, reliable and dedicated to a prosperous Missouri. They achieve this by designing, building and maintaining roads and bridges, and working to improve airports, river ports, railroads, public transit systems and pedestrian and bicycle travel.[3]

MoDOT has been one of the leaders in the construction of the diverging diamond interchange, having built the first such interchange in the United States on June 2009 in Springfield.[4]
