MoDOT to restripe Eastbound 44 this weekend

(KMOV) -- Beginning tonight, eastbound Interstate 44 will be down to two lanes all weekend.

Two lanes at a time on eastbound I-44 will be closed starting at 7:00 tonight along the stretch between Interstate 55 out of downtown and Interstate 270. Entrance and exit ramps will also be shut down periodically as crews are restriping.

MoDOT is restriping the lanes from five down to four. The extra lane was added to accommodate more traffic when Interstate 64 was closed. Now that I-64 is open, I-44 is going back to normal.

Detours to consider taking to get to I-270 include using Interstates 55 or 64.
All lanes will reopen Monday morning.
