MoDOT to reopen I-44 near Shrewsbury next week

ST. LOUIS – Drivers who use I-44 to commute into and out of St. Louis City will get a brief respite from construction near Shrewsbury starting next week, when crews fully reopen all lanes on the interstate. Work is weather permitting.

Crews will start on the westbound lanes, closing one additional lane (for a total of two westbound lanes) between 6 a.m. and 2 p.m. Monday, December 18. Crews will also close one additional lane (for a total of two eastbound lanes) between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. Drivers will have four westbound lanes before evening rush.

Crews will close one additional lane (for a total of two eastbound lanes) on Tuesday, December 19 and Wednesday, December 20 between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. to remove barrier wall and restripe. Drivers will have four eastbound lanes after 6 p.m. Wednesday. In addition, the ramp from Shrewsbury to eastbound I-44 will reopen by 6 p.m. Wednesday.

The interstate will remain open through the winter, but drivers can once again expect around-the-clock lane closures in March 2018, when crews will start reconstruction on the eastbound I-44 bridge over the Union Pacific Railroad tracks. The ramp from Shrewsbury to eastbound I-44 will also have to close for the year in March. More details will be released on those closures when they are finalized.
