MoDOT to host final public event for I-270 North Environmental Study Dec. 15

ST. LOUIS – The public will get one last chance to provide input for improvements on I-270 in North St. Louis County next week.

The Missouri Department of Transportation will host a public hearing for the I-270 North Environmental Assessment (EA) and Preferred Alternative on Thursday, December 15. It will take place from 4 – 7 p.m. in the cafeteria/commons area at McCluer High School located at 1896 S. New Florissant Road, Florissant, MO 63031.

Attendees will have the opportunity to provide feedback by:

  • Completing a comment form in writing or online
  • Giving comments to a court reporter
  • Speaking at an open microphone publicly with a 2 minute limit

The public hearing follows the recent approval of the EA and Preferred Alternative by the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). The proposed improvements recommend rebuilding most of the existing interchanges, including the major system interchanges at Lindbergh and Route 367. It also consists of creating a one-way outer road system with Dunn Road (I-270 North Outer Road) and Pershall Road (I-270 South Outer Road) between Hanley/Graham and Old Halls Ferry.

“These improvements address the needs the public helped identify early in the study,” said MoDOT’s North Area Engineer Lisa Kuntz. “They are congestion, safety, and mobility, as well as accessibility and aging infrastructure. This study moves us one step closer to implementing improvements along this 15-mile corridor.”

The components of the Preferred Alternative follow the baseline performance measures that were decided early in the study. The proposed improvements are concepts only and are subject to change.

For citizens unable to attend the public hearing, the EA is available for review and comment at www.I-270North.org . It is also available at the Prairie Commons and Lewis and Clark St. Louis County Library branches as well as the City of Ferguson Municipal Public Library. Written comments must be received by Friday, January 6, 2017, and should be mailed to: Chief Engineer Ed Hassinger, MoDOT, P.O. Box 270, Jefferson City, MO 65102.

Once the comment period ends, the study team will review all comments, and respond to substantive comments. Currently the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) has $100 million available for the first phase of upgrading I-270.
