Interstate 44 Pavement Replacement Project - Route 141 to Lewis Road

UPDATE: MoDOT and its contractor are working hard to get all eastbound lanes from Lewis Road to Antire Road reopened by mid October, weather permitting. All westbound lanes and exit and entrance ramps at Antire Road are now open.

The lanes were expected to reopen in mid-September, but there were unexpected utility delays during this project. There were also additional pavement repairs that were necessary to be completed before the eastbound and westbound lanes can be reopened.

MoDOT appreciates your patience during this construction, which is being completed in one season rather spanning over a two-year period as originally planned. Once it is completed, motorists will notice that this section of I-44 will have smoother pavement and a longer life-span to accommodate St. Louis motorists.

There are currently lane shifts and closures on Interstate 44 from Route 141 to Lewis Road, which is part of an on-going pavement replacement project in this section. Motorists will experience delays during this construction work zone and are encouraged to use alternate routes. To avoid delays, motorists need to alter their travel times by leaving earlier for their daily commute.

Westbound I-44

All westbound lanes are now open.

In addition, the entrance and exit ramps from westbound I-44 to Antire are now open.


Eastbound I-44

One eastbound lane on Interstate 44 is closed from Lewis Road to Antire Road with two lanes open around the clock until mid October. Motorists will experience traffic delays of several minutes on Interstate 44 with this one-lane closure during morning peak travel times, especially from 6:45 a.m. to 7:45 a.m. MoDOT has been evaluating the traffic delays and travel times during every morning rush-hour to make any necessary adjustments.

MoDOT and the Missouri State Highway Patrol urges motorists to slow down, stay alert and watch out for the highway workers during this construction project.
