Construction associations are calling for more funding for road repair.

Missy Shelton has the story from Jefferson City.

The Missouri Transportation Coalition says not enough revenue from the state gasoline tax is being spent on construction.

A study done by the group shows that only a small fraction of repairs planned by the Transportation Department are completed or underway.

The group's chairman is Rick Grebel.

But the Transportation Department says many projects are still being planned.

It says money won't be spent until they reach the construction stage.
