KDOT Secretary elected president of Midwestern transportation group

Kansas Transportation Secretary Mike King was elected president of the Mid America Association of State Transportation Officials (MAASTO) last week at the group’s annual meeting in Indianapolis.

MAASTO is a consortium of Midwestern states whose goal is “to foster the development, operation and maintenance of an integrated and balanced transportation system that adequately serves the transportation needs of the 10 member states.”

Secretary King said his focus during his one-year term will be the seamless, state-to-state movement of freight in the region.

In addition to Kansas, MAASTO states include Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Missouri and Kentucky.  

The Kansas and Missouri DOTs are co-hosting the 106th Annual Meeting of the MAASTO next year in Kansas City.  Check out the video below of Secretary King and Missouri DOT Director Dave Nichols inviting people to attend the conference in Kansas City.
