Westbound Bridge to Open Late Summer
Missouri Department of Transportation District Engineer Ed Hassinger and City of St. Charles Mayor Sally Faith announced today the I-70 Blanchette Missouri River Bridge rehabilitation project is ahead of schedule. The westbound I-70 bridge was closed November 2, 2012, for a maximum one year closure. “We are pleased to announce today that our reconstruction work is progressing ahead of the one year schedule,” said Ed Hassinger. “The contractor, Walsh Construction, is pushing to open the bridge to traffic before the city’s annual Festival of the Little Hills in mid-August. Motorists have done a great job adjusting to the reduced lanes on I-70 at the Blanchette Bridge, and we appreciate their patience and cooperation,” said Hassinger. We need people to continue using the alternate bridge crossings and avoiding I-70 during rush hours for a few more months. For more information on the I-70 Blanchette Bridge rehabilitation project, go to www.modot.org/blanchettebridge.
The $118.2 million project will build nine miles of four lane divided highway from Route 94 in St. Peters to I-64 in Lake St. Louis. The funding for Route 364 Phase 3 is a cost-share project with MoDOT, St Charles County and the local municipalities in St Charles County. Route 364 Phase 3 construction will start in late spring/early summer of 2013. The project is scheduled for completion in fall 2014. You can get more information on the MoDOT project website, www.modot.org/route364 , which also allows citizens to sign up for regular e-updates regarding the construction schedule.
