(KMOV) – The Missouri Department of Transportation held an open-house meeting Monday evening to debate a new project to improve traffic flow on I-270.

The plan by MoDOT is to construct an additional northbound lane between I-44 and Manchester Rd. and another southbound lane between Doughtery Ferry and 1-44.   

Because of the roadway restrictions according to MoDOT officials, I-270 would have narrower lanes. MoDOT officials say statistics on the narrowing of 1-44 did not result in more accidents

Construction on this project will start later this year and is expected to be completed in December 2013. 

MoDOT says I-270 will have shoulders everywhere between I-44 and Manchester, except under bridges.
