All lanes of I-44 west of I-270 reopened

The road will likely remain closed throughout the week. Manchester is expected to take the brunt of the traffic.

ST. LOUIS COUNTY - Update: All lanes of Interstate 44 from I-270 to Route 100 have reopened.

MoDOT closed the interstate Monday night due to flood waters rising onto the road, but waters have receded, and the last of the lanes were reopened just after 9 p.m. Thursday night.

This was not the first section of I-44 to close after last weekend's torrential downpours. The interstate also closed between Lebanon and Rolla, but has since been reopened. 

MoDOT is continuously updating its Traveler Information Map with the latest closures. You can also call 1-888-ASK-MoDOT (275-6636) for up-to-date information.
