ST. LOUIS (KMOV) -- The Missouri Department of Transportation wants to hear from the public about what changes need to be made to fix the I-270 corridor in North St. Louis County. Over the years, drivers and businesses have expressed concerns about traffic backups and safety.
The meeting will take place from 4-7 pm in the Student Center Multipurpose Room at St. Louis Community College-Florissant Valley, 3400 Pershall Road, St. Louis, MO 63135.
The area in question spans I-270 from McDonnell Blvd east to Route 367.
Several bridges have been identified that need to major rehab or replacement. Drivers have cited congestion problems with interchanges, and the outer road system isn't conducive to safety.
MoDOT is also concerned about the impact business growth will have on an already congested interstate. A new records center on Dunn Road east of 367 will add more than 800 jobs, for example. Beyond that, there's development at the old Ford Plant, the North Park Development new records center on Dunn Road east of 367, and the potential for the China Hub.
