JEFFERSON COUNTY - The Missouri Department of Transportation will close Route M east of the southbound I-55 exit ramp to the railroad overpass starting at 8 p.m. Friday, June 14, weather permitting. All lanes on this section of Route M will be closed until 8 a.m. Saturday.
Crews will also close the Route M exit ramp on northbound I-55 during this same timeframe. These lane and ramp closures are necessary while crews perform repaving work.
Motorists are urged to use the outer roads to Route Z while Route M is closed.
This repaving work is part of the last phase of the Interstate 55 and Route M Interchange Improvement Project, which is expected to be fully complete by July. MoDOT has added an exit ramp from Interstate 55 to Route M. It also added an entrance (loop) ramp from eastbound Route M to northbound Interstate 55.
