This morning, MoDOT’s St. Louis District Engineer Ed Hassinger announced two major construction projects are near completion: I-64 double deck (Poplar Street Bridge) rehabilitation and I-44 at Antire pavement replacement.
On Interstate 44 near Eureka, Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) crews are wrapping up major work on a pavement replacement project from Lewis Road to Antire Road. During this year’s construction, MoDOT teams rebuilt the pavement so motorists have a smoother commute, said MoDOT’s St. Louis District Engineer Ed Hassinger. Guard cable is an added safety feature to this section of I-44 to help prevent crossover crashes, he said. "To complete this project, crews will perform striping work early next year, weather/temperature permitting," said Hassinger. There will be periodic lane closures at the construction zone during non-peak travel times.
