MoDOT to close ramp from Shrewsbury to I-44 morning of March 6

ST. LOUIS – Drivers who use I-44 to get into the city should allow themselves a little extra time as they enter or exit the city limits for the remainder of the year.

On Monday, March 6, the Missouri Department of Transportation will start preliminary work to renovate the I-44 bridge over the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad at the St. Louis City limits.

Crews will close the ramp from Shrewsbury to eastbound I-44 at 9 a.m. Monday, March 6. The ramp will remain closed until December 2017. Crews will start working on building up the shoulders at the ramp area to prepare for an upcoming traffic shift later in March. During much of March, drivers can expect one lane closed eastbound and westbound on I-44 during non-peak hours. Eastbound work will typically run between 9 a.m. and 8 p.m.; westbound work will run between about 5 a.m. and 3 p.m.

In late March, crews will close one lane on eastbound and westbound I-44 around the clock. They will shift the lanes of westbound I-44 onto the eastbound bridge over the railroad. Drivers will have three lanes in each direction as crews work on the westbound bridge this year. Work on the westbound bridge continues until December.

To detour around the ramp closure, drivers can access eastbound I-44 at Arsenal. The westbound ramp at Shrewsbury will not be impacted by the ongoing construction. Currently, work is scheduled for the eastbound bridge between March and December 2018. Drivers can expect similar restrictions as a part of that construction work.

More details will be released as soon as they become available.
