MoDot is warning drivers to slow down and take extra time while driving through construction zones in the upcoming weeks.
Drivers who use the I-170 and Lucas-Hunt (Route U) Interchange in north St. Louis County will notice ramp closures and changes in traffic patterns on the interchange starting next week.
At 7 p.m. Wednesday, June 6, crews will close the northbound Lucas-Hunt ramp onto westbound I-70 permanently.
Currently drivers access this ramp from the right lane. When the ramp closes, drivers on northbound Lucas-Hunt will be able to enter westbound I-70 from the left lane.
Also, at 7 p.m. Monday, June 11 crews will close the westbound I-70 exit ramp at Lucas-Hunt. Detour signs will be in place.
This is the second phase of a larger project that will enhance all of the ramps on the interchange.
When the project is finished, the ramps will provide safer entrances and closures to and from I-70 at Lucas-Hunt, according to MoDot.
