ST. LOUIS, Mo. ( -

The Missouri Department of Transportation said the loop ramp from westbound I-44 to southbound Route 141 should open by Friday, weather permitting.

MoDOT and its design-build contractor, Pace Construction Company LLC, celebrated the last major portion of improvements to the Route 141 Design-Build project this week.

The department and contractor held a ribbon cutting ceremony to mark the opening of the last significant piece in the project.

The ribbon cutting was held today at 2 p.m. on the unopened loop ramp.

There is still one segment of the project to complete MoDOT said. This segment will add a third left turn lane on the ramp from eastbound I-44 to northbound 141.

This segment should open within less than a week.

When that work is complete, all the planned improvements will be finished and drivers should start to see more improvements in traffic flow as people get used to the new traffic patterns, according to MoDOT.
