Winter Storm Could Stall I-64 Repairs

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – A major road project is slated to begin Monday in the Metro East, if weather conditions allow.

IDOT officials admit it’s looking more and more likely that they’ll have to delay the start of the 8-month project to repair Interstate 64 between Highway 111 and 18th Street.

Construction engineer Tom Borsch says one lane of I-64 will be closed in each direction during peak times, but there is a way around the project.

“If you’re coming from the East, you could take I-255, exit off of 255, and go up to I-55/70 and come back down south,” he said.

He says that will also work for traffic crossing over from Missouri, or you can shoot down I-255 and use the Jefferson Barracks bridge.

The $15 million road repair project is scheduled to run through the end of October.
