Please see the below update from MoDOT for the ongoing work on I-44.
St. Louis - We wanted to give you a quick update. We will be opening all lanes in both directions on I-44 near Shrewsbury tomorrow (June 27). Westbound lanes should be open before 2 p.m. for evening rush. The eastbound lanes should be opened before 7 p.m. The ramp from Shrewsbury to eastbound I-44 will reopen after the eastbound lanes have reopened.
There is still work to be done around the project, including resurfacing. Until the resurfacing is complete, there will be a slight bump at the bridges – that will get fixed with the final layer of asphalt. That final layer of asphalt will cover the existing stripes and give crews a clean surface to put down the final lane lines. All additional work around the project will be done under the bridge or during non-peak traffic times. The remainder of the project should be complete before fall.
Crews are still working on the bridge rehabilitation and replacement project on I-44 between Grand and Kingshighway. That section of I-44 will still have one lane closed eastbound and two lanes closed westbound through December. The ramp from Grand to westbound I-44 should reopen July 3. The ramp from Vandeventer to westbound I-44 will remain closed through December. Next spring, we will resurface I-44 between Grand and Kingshighway.

MoDOT continues I-44 bridge work between Kingshighway and Grand
ST. LOUIS – Next week, crews will start the second year of a construction project to update several bridges on I-44 in St. Louis City between Kingshighway and Grand.
This work replaces interstate bridges at Kingshighway, Thurman and 39th Street and rehabilitates interstate bridges over Vandeventer, Tower Grove and the Union Pacific Railroad tracks.
All work is weather permitting and may be shifted.
Starting Monday, March 18, between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. crews will close one lane on eastbound I-44 and restripe eastbound I-44 for three lanes. Each evening for the remainder of the week, between 7 p.m. and 5 a.m., crews will close an additional lane to set barrier wall for the new temporary median.
On Saturday, March 23, starting at 8 a.m., crews will close two lanes on westbound I-44 and shift the remaining two lanes onto the eastbound interstate. They will also close the Vandeventer ramp to westbound I-44 and the Grand ramp to westbound I-44. When the traffic shift is complete by 6 p.m. Saturday, there will be three eastbound lanes and two westbound lanes on the interstate through the end of the year. The Vandeventer ramp to westbound I-44 will also remain closed for the remainder of the year; the Grand ramp to westbound I-44 is scheduled to reopen in three months.
Crews will work on the westbound bridges this year. Details on specific lane closures on the roads under the bridges will be shared as they become available. Crews will put a new driving surface on I-44 in this area in spring 2020, once the bridge construction is complete.
People using I-44 for their commute should consider using I-64 or I-70, taking Metro, using ridesharing or carpooling, or allowing themselves extra time as this construction work restarts.
