ST. LOUIS – Interstate 44 is closed between Bowles Avenue in West St. Louis County and Route 100 in Franklin County due to flooding of the Meramec River at Route 141. The closure is between mile marker 253 and 273 and is expected to last a few days.
Due to other closures in the area, the traffic detour for local traffic is as follows:
In addition, I-44 is also closed between Rolla and St. Robert, mile marker 186 to 161. These two closures as well as more than 220 other roads closed throughout Missouri are creating lots of detours for travelers. Motorists needing to travel westbound across Missouri are encouraged to use I-70 to I-49 southbound in Kansas City to I-44 in Joplin or the reverse for eastbound travel.
