Road construction closures and restrictions

ST. LOUIS – MoDOT crews will be working on many projects through June which will result in many closures around-the-clock in the St. Louis area.

The ramp from I-44/I-55 to eastbound I-64/I-55 across the Mississippi River was closed starting at 8 p.m. Friday, June 8. Crews also closed the ramp from Marion onto eastbound I-44/northbound I-55. While the ramp is closed, they will be making repairs to the pavement and barrier wall caused by a semi-truck crash a little more than a week ago. The detour for the closure will be marked.

Meanwhile, drivers in north St. Louis County can expect delays starting Saturday. Crews will continue construction on the Fee Fee Bridge located under the highway between Dorsett and Interstate 70.

Crews will restrict southbound I-270 from five to three narrowed lanes from I-70 to Dorsett. These lane closures and restrictions are expected to remain through July. The posted speed limit will be 45 miles per hour.

In addition, there will be a two-week closure of the northbound Interstate 270 ramp to Dorsett.

MoDOT say motorists may experience up to 30-minute delays while driving through this area, especially during morning and evening rush hours.
