Route 141 Back Down to One Lane After Weekend Ribbon Cutting

Missouri Department of Transportation crews took stretch of Route 141 between Parkway Central High School and St. Luke's Hospital down to one lane.

On Saturday morning, St. Louis County officials held a ribbon cutting on the new section of Route 141 that stretches from Ladue to Olive. There was a 10K run in the morning, and thousands of people showed up just to stroll or pedal the fresh concrete.

Unfortunately, the road is not quite finished.

spokespersons stated in a news release that although much of the new Route 141 opened this weekend, drivers can expect continued lane restrictions through the remainder of the project.

Currently, the Town and Country stretch of Route 141 between  and is reduced to one lane and these restrictions are expected to last less than one month. MoDOT spokespersons stated this is so crews can remove the temporary bypass built to connect to Woods Mill Road and place new concrete for Route 141. 

In addition, Woods Mill Road is now closed from Parkway Central to St. Luke’s Hospital so crews can relocate Woods Mill and build the connection to Ladue. That closure is expected to last one month. Drivers who need to access Woods Mill Road from Route 141 are advised to take the new Route 141 north to Olive Boulevard, make a left on Olive Boulevard and then another left onto Woods Mill Road.
