MoDot has produced a great little video explaining upcoming street closures and lane changes at Dorsett & I-270.  The video clip includes an animation of how the new intersection will work and explains the accelerated timeline. 

The cover of today’s St. Louis Post-Dispatch also features the upcoming changes at the exchange.  Find more information here.

The construction phase is painful, but the result will be worth it.  Traffic will move better and new landscaping will improve significantly the impression of Maryland Heights when you get off the interstate.
The St. Louis County Department of Highways & Traffic and KCI Construction Company are holding an informational session for the public to learn more about the construction project linking the Maryland Heights Expressway to Olive Boulevard. This is a key connection from the extension of Highway 141 to the Maryland Heights Expressway and the final piece of county roadway to create a full north-to-south route west of I-270.
