Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon to visit northeast Missouri today.

Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon is wrapping up the work week on the road.

Nixon scheduled three public appearances Friday in northeastern Missouri, starting in Canton for the ribbon-cutting of a $6 million grain elevator for the Ursa Farmers Cooperative. The state provided a block grant to help acquire and clear riverfront property for the elevator.

Nixon also plans to visit another town along the Mississippi River, to present an agricultural award to a nursery in Louisiana, Mo. He wraps up the trip with an event honoring the Palmyra School District for its academic performance and remarks to an assembly at Palmyra High School.
