Most roadwork will stop over holiday weekend

Holiday drivers will find some roadwork projects picked up for the weekend. Both Missouri and Illinois transportation officials say they’re suspending non-emergency roadwork for the Independence Day weekend.

IDOT will stop work at 3 p.m. Thursday and remove lane restrictions where possible. Some lane restrictions will remain in place for long-term projects, including I-255 between I-270 and Horseshoe Lake Road. Work will resume in Illinois after midnight Sunday night.

In Missouri, most work will be halted from noon Thursday until 9 a.m. Monday.  Traffic will still be restricted in areas where there are permanent barriers, like the Tower Grove bridge project along I-64 in St. Louis City.

Also, MoDOT officials remind drivers that some interstate lanes around Forest Park will be exceptionally congested as people attend Fair St. Louis at the park this year. Some ramp and lane restrictions will be in place along I-64 to help control traffic flow. Drivers are urged to avoid the jams by taking MetroLink to the Fair.
