Current Bill Summary

SB 826 - Under this act, the Missouri Department of Transportation shall have the same power and authority over private property along a road or highway that has been designated a scenic byway that the department had over the private property prior to the road or highway being designated as a scenic byway. Nothing in the scenic byway program shall be construed as granting the department power to acquire scenic easements within an area designated as a scenic byway. The department shall not require private property owners who own real estate along a scenic byway to restrict, limit, or restrain the use of their property unless such restriction, limitation, or restraint also would be applicable to a road or highway that is not a scenic byway.
