Part of new Neosho road extension named after project board member

NEOSHO, Mo. — A local government organization is recognizing the hard work of one of its board members.

Gene Schwartz has served on the board of the Neosho Transportation Development District for 12 years, working on a project to improve the area’s transportation.

That project includes adding stoplights to highway 60 and extending Kodiak Road near Neosho Junior High.

Wednesday, the district held a ceremony to dedicate part of the Kodiak extension to Schwartz.
