Missouri Center for Transportation Innovation (MCTI)

We don’t just improve Missouri infrastructure – we transform it.

Transportation research shouldn’t end at just ideas — its effects should be seen in our roads and structures.

That’s the vision of the Missouri Center for Transportation Innovation (MCTI) – to drive transportation research forward and turn that research into real-world results. Better infrastructure means safer roads, a more connected community and a robust economy.
