Dr. John J. Myers, professor of civil, architectural and environmental engineering, was recently named director of the statewide Missouri Center for Transportation Innovation (MCTI).

“I am excited to serve as the next director of MCTI, and I look forward to expanding the collaborative opportunities and building upon the successes seen during the first three years of operations under Dr. Bill Buttlar’s leadership,” Myers says.

MCTI began three years ago as a research center that works in partnership with the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT), and Myers has served as deputy director since its launch. A significant amount of MoDOT’s research funding goes to this group.
