MODOT Plans For More Construction Along I-44 in 2019, Other Work On I-70, I-270

By on March 12, 2019

From St. Louis Public Radio:  The Missouri Department of Transportation on Friday announced construction plans that could cause delays for many commuters in the region.

MODOT District Engineer Tom Blair said the construction will mostly impact traffic along the Interstate 44 corridor. An I-44 bridge near Shrewsbury, which MODOT found cracks in last year, will be closed through 2019. Contractors will also work on bridges between Kingshighway and 39th Street in St. Louis throughout the year.

MODOT recommends affected drivers to find alternate routes around construction, or carpool. Drivers can also check the status of ongoing projects through the MODOT website.

Blair said the amount of construction planned is on par with an average year. He urged commuters to “try to understand where the work zones are that impact your commute, or your business, and try to start building your plan around them.”
