How Are the Road Infrastructure and Bridges in Joplin?
Like with any medium-sized city, infrastructure is an important issue for Joplin residents. Given its location along major highways, there is substantial traffic on the city’s roads. To that end, voters recently approved a sales tax to address infrastructure issues.
Statewide, Missouri has received relatively low marks for infrastructure. In 2021, the state received a grade of C- for infrastructure. This low rating was based in part on more than 20% of the bridges in the state being in poor condition.
