St. Louis County, MO (November 2, 2020) – St. Louis County is committing significant financial resources to assist Missouri’s Department of Transportation as the state continues its $278 million rebuild of I-270 in North County.
Under a cost-sharing agreement with the state’s Department of Transportation (MoDOT), the County will invest more than $6 million to resurface roads, build sidewalks and add turn lanes at high-volume roads that provide direct access to the interstate. These projects – and other work – will improve traffic flow during the I-270 rebuild and optimize the many benefits of the new and improved I-270 corridor once the rebuild is complete.
“This is a historic construction project that will benefit North County and the entire region for many years to come,” said St. Louis County Executive Dr. Sam Page. “More than 140,000 vehicles use I-270 each day, and St. Louis County is proud to play a role in making these critical improvements a reality.”
MoDOT began its rebuild of I-270 this past spring. The interstate construction project will span from James S. McDonnell Boulevard/Howdershell Road east to Bellefontaine Road, with work expected to conclude by late 2023.
Aspects of the project to be financed by St. Louis County include:
