Southbound I-55 Now Open over Meramec River
Northbound I-55 Remained Open

St. LOUIS –All  lanes of southbound Interstate 55  in Arnold are open to traffic between St. Louis and Jefferson counties.  The Meramec River crested early Thursday morning and MoDOT crews began opening lanes as the water receded. Northbound I-55 remained open yesterday during the  flooding of the southbound lanes.


“The cresting of Meramec River is the beginning of the light at the end of the tunnel,” said MoDOT-St. Louis Asst. District Engineer Tom Blair.  “This crest means there could possibly be other roads opening soon.”
