St. Louis Work Zones for March 1-7
MoDOT to Close Lanes on I-44 Near Shrewsbury Starting Monday

ST. LOUIS – MoDOT will start work next week on renovations to the eastbound I-44 bridge over the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad at the St. Louis City limits. Starting on Monday, March 5 at 5 a.m., crews will close two westbound lanes on I-44 between Jamieson and Shrewsbury. Those lanes will remain closed around the clock through the end of the year.

Crews will close an additional lane on westbound I-44 between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. each night through Friday to set barrier wall. There will be only one lane open westbound during this portion of the work. In addition, crews may close one lane on eastbound I-44 outside of rush periods. When the work is completed, as early as the night of March 9, crews will close the ramp from Shrewsbury to eastbound I-44 and one lane on eastbound I-44. They will then shift the remaining three lanes of traffic onto westbound I-44, for the remainder of the project.

Drivers can detour around the ramp closure by accessing eastbound I-44 at Arsenal. Since there will be two westbound lanes and one eastbound lane closed around the clock, drivers should consider alternate routes, shifting their commute time or telecommuting (if possible) or using transit, carpooling or ride share options to avoid congestion.

For additional work zone information and real-time roadway weather conditions, go to http://traveler.modot.org/map. For real-time traffic, visit www.gatewayguide.com. All work is weather permitting and may be shifted due to inclement weather
