Watch out for shoulder drops if traveling Interstate 44 between Eureka and Fenton!
One eastbound lane on I-44 will be closed around-the-clock until mid-September as part of a pavement repair and resurfacing project on Interstate 44 at Antire Road near the Eureka exit.
Starting Friday, June 1, Missouri Department of Transportation crews will close one lane on westbound I-44 at Antire Road around-the-clock, except between 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. weekdays for the evening rush period, according to a MoDOT release issued Wednesday afternoon.
In addition, the entrance and exit ramps from westbound I-44 to Antire will be closed during the month of June.
Drivers heading from Antire Road to westbound I-44 will need to take eastbound I-44 to Route 141 and head back along westbound I-44. Drivers on westbound I-44 heading to Antire Road will need to take westbound I-44 to Lewis Road, head back on eastbound I-44 and exit at Antire Road.
All detours will be marked.
Motorists will experience delays during this work and are encouraged to use alternate routes. To plan how to avoid this and other MoDOT work zones, call 1-888-ASK-MODOT or visit the MoDOT website.
