Lane Changes on Northbound I-270 at I-44

Brad Choat

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – There’s a weird traffic pattern in place on northbound Interstate 270 at the Interstate 44 interchange.

“There are five lanes going through that area, but there’s a Work Zone in the middle,” says MoDOT engineer Tom Blair.

He explains how drivers should handle the situation, “Everybody that wants to go off northbound 270 to I-44 needs to stay in the right lanes. Everybody who wants to stay on northbound 270 should stay in the left lanes.”

Blair says the lane re-configuration is needed so crews can make bridge repairs.

He says the speed limit through that zone has been lowered to 45 miles per hour.
