This year, the Missouri Department of Transportation has several projects planned along the I-44 corridor in St. Louis County and St. Louis City. This is part of planned rehabilitation projects for aging bridges along the I-44 corridor. There are a number of bridges scheduled for work in 2019, and work along the I-44 corridor will continue through 2020. Here's what you can expect this year:
