MoDOT 141 Updates

Photos & design plans: MoDOT Route 141 and I-44 Design-Build Project Update

Update February 22, 2017: MoDOT to close western outer road connection to Route 141 next week

http://www.modot.org/stlouis/news_and_information/District6Release.shtml?action=displaySSI&newsId=210113

Drivers who use the I-44 north outer road in Valley Park will need to allow a little extra time to get around starting next week.

The Missouri Department of Transportation and its contractor, Pace Construction, will close the western ramp connecting southbound Route 141 and the north outer road before morning rush on Monday, February 27.

This closure is part of on-going work to update and rebuild the connections between Route 141, I-44 and the north outer road as a part of the Route 141 Design Build project in Valley Park.  The connection will remain closed until mid-summer 2017.

To detour around the closure, take Route 141 south, turn left onto South Highway Drive and bear to the right.  Take South Highway Drive to the Maritz overpass, turn left and then turn left onto North Highway Drive.  Take North Highway Drive to the roundabout and access the north outer road.  Details on the detour are available here: http://www.modot.org/stlouis/major_projects/documents/2017NORdetour.pdf

Update February 14, 2017: Thru-turns will open north of Vance and south of Marshall Road in June this year. 

Update February 14, 2017: MoDOT to relocate commuter lot at I-44, Route 141 late this  week:

Construction is continuing well on the design-build project.  Work is well underway on the flyover ramp and the thru turns near Vance and Marshall. We’ll share more information on those thru-turns later this spring.

Of more immediate importance: On February 17, MoDOT will open the new Park and Ride lot on the east side of the Route 141 project.  The following Monday (February 20) the department will permanently close the existing Park and Ride lot on the west side of Route 141. This will let crews continue making improvements to the north outer road system as a part of the Route 141 Design Build project. Drivers who have vehicles parked long-term at the Park and Ride lot should move them by February 17.

During the on-going construction, drivers will need to use detours to get to the new Park and Ride lot.

To get to the Park and Ride lot from:

  • Westbound I-44: Exit at 141, take North Highway Drive to the roundabout and take the leg for the north outer road. The Park and Ride lot will be on the left.
  • Eastbound I-44: Exit at Route 141. Cross over Route 141 to South Highway Drive. Turn left at Maritz and follow North Highway Drive to the roundabout. Take the leg for the north outer road. The Park and Ride lot will be on the left.
  • Southbound 141: Until March – take the ramp to the north outer road, turn right and follow the outer road to the Park and Ride lot on the right. After crews close the ramp in March, southbound drivers will need to turn left toward eastbound I-44 and bear to the right to take South Highway Drive. Turn left at Maritz and follow North Highway Drive to the roundabout. Take the leg for the north outer road. The Park and Ride lot will be on the left.
  • Northbound 141: before I-44, turn right onto the ramp for EB I-44 and bear to the right to take South Highway Drive. Turn left at Maritz and follow North Highway Drive to the roundabout. Take the leg for the north outer road. The Park and Ride lot will be on the left.

To get from the Park and Ride lot:

  • To WB I-44: Turn right out of the Park and Ride lot and take the roundabout. Exit on the leg for the North Highway Drive. Follow it to Route 141 and cross Route 141 to the westbound interstate ramp.
  • To EB I-44: Turn right out of the Park and Ride lot and take the roundabout. Exit on the leg for North Highway Drive. Follow it to Route 141, turn south and get in the left lanes for the eastbound interstate ramp.
  • To northbound or southbound 141: Turn right out of the Park and Ride lot and take the roundabout. Exit on the leg for North Highway Drive. Follow it to Route 141 and turn north or  south.
