ST. LOUIS – Drivers who use the Interstate 44 and Interstate 270 interchange in south west St. Louis County should be prepared for delays overnight Friday as crews shift traffic onto a new exit and bridge.
Crews will close all but one westbound I-44 lane between roughly Lindbergh and Soccer Park starting at 8 p.m. Friday, September 10 to complete the shift. In addition, crews will close the ramps between northbound I-270 and westbound I-44, southbound I-270 to westbound I-44 and westbound I-44 to North Outer Road/Soccer Park. However, only one ramp will be closed at a time.
All lanes and ramps are expected to reopen by 5 a.m. Saturday, September 11.
When the shift is finished, the biggest change will be for westbound I-44 drivers heading to the Soccer Park exit (Exit 275). Those drivers will need to exit the interstate where I-44 crosses under I-270 and follow the new roadway to the Soccer Park exit. Drivers on westbound I-44 should pay attention to the new signs and watch out for drivers who may be making sudden lane changes.
