ST. LOUIS COUNTY - The Missouri Department of Transportation will close one lane at night on Route 109 between I-44 and Route 100 starting the week of July 15. Crews will perform paving work on multiple intersections between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m., while one lane is closed, weather permitting. This paving work is expected to last until Fall 2013.
Since one lane will be closed throughout the project, traffic will be escorted through the work zone by following a pilot car. The pilot car is a construction vehicle with emergency lights and a sign identifying it used to guide motorists safely through a narrow work zone. Please pay attention to the pilot car, flagging operations and work zone signs. Motorists can expect long delays and are urged to avoid this section of Route 109 during these nighttime hours if possible. Motorists should use alternate routes.
