ST. LOUIS – Interstate 44 between I-270 in St. Louis County and Route 100/Gray Summit in Franklin County is now closed.  The interstate closed due to the rising waters of the Meramec River. 

Westbound I-44 is closed at I-270 while eastbound I-44 is closed at Route 100/Gray Summit.  Local traffic only will be allowed westbound to Bowles and eastbound local traffic will be allowed to Pacific, Eureka and Route 109.  Interstate traffic cannot get through this area.  Route 100 between Gray Summit and I-270 will be the alternate route for I-44 travelers.  Trucks traveling across the state are encouraged to take I-70.

Route 109 also closed this evening at Eureka High School.  MoDOT continues to watch water levels along the Meramec River at Route 30/Gravois and Route 21/Tesson Ferry, both of which could affect Tuesday morning’s commute.

Check MoDOT’s Traveler Information Map to stay current on all flooding closures at http://traveler.modot.org/map/. The map is also available as a free app on iTunes and Google play listed as MoDOT Traveler Information.

You can also call 1-888-ASK-MoDOT (275-6636) for up-to-date information.
