MoDOT resurrects controversial I-55 ramp proposal
The Missouri Department of Transportation is again pushing a proposal to build two-lane ramps to ease the congestion at Interstate 55 and the Poplar Street Bridge.
Preliminary figures on how many Missouri high school students earn their diplomas have been released, and a new procedure for calculating graduation rates is being used.
The new procedure is mandated by the federal government, and it only takes into account students who complete high school in four years time. Michele Clark is with the state Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE).
