MoDOT Started Construction on I-270 North: Virtual Groundbreaking

With COVID's onset just days prior to groundbreaking, the I-270 North team developed a virtual launch plan. The public was invited to celebrate the April 20, 2020, kick-off via a project launch page and social media channels. Local and statewide elected officials, business, and area residents uploaded videos to the project launch page and shared comments on social media. In addition, the team hosted a live chat and virtual public meeting online.

The Process

People-Centered Inclusion

"Those who live, work and play within the I-270 North Corridor have helped us tell the story of the I-270 North Project in our newsletters, in project videos, on social media and on our website. Their faces, quotes and comments are a huge part of communications for the project, and an excellent example of truly inclusive engagement."

- Nina Thompson, Communications Coordinator
