Construction Work on I-44 East of St. Robert Has Been Completed

Motorists on Interstate 44 this weekend should enjoy a major construction project no longer requiring one lane of traffic over the bridges two miles east of St. Robert. Modot says the work has been completed on the bridges over Trophy Lane and two lanes are open to traffic in the eastbound and westbound lanes. There is still some minor striping corrections that are scheduled to take place early next week with minimal impacts to traffic expected.
However, the westbound work between Rolla and Sugar Tree Road will be ongoing throughout the Fall. This limits westbound traffic to just one lane for a stretch of the interstate. A tentative completion date for this work will be mid-November, provided there aren’t major delays due to weather or unforeseen circumstances.
And, rehabilitation work on the eastbound Roubidoux Bridge on I-44 began on Thursday. There will be one eastbound lane of the interstate closed for the duration of the work. This work is not planned to be as extensive as the work on the Trophy Lane bridges. Tentative completion date for this bridge is early November, assuming minimal weather issues and no unforeseen circumstances like what Modot ran into on the Trophy Lane bridges.
