[ARCHIVED] Learn About the Future of the I-70 Corridor at Upcoming Meetings

ST. CHARLES COUNTY, MO - Is I-70 a part of your community or your commute? Are you interested in the future of issues related to traffic, transit, and development along the I-70 corridor? Have you ever wondered what is involved in a long-range planning process for our region’s interstates? If so, two upcoming public meetings may be of interest to you.

The Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT), in close coordination with East-West Gateway Council of Governments and Metro, is in the final stages of a planning and environmental linkages study called Envision I-70. The study takes a high-level look at what I-70 is today, and envisions what it can be in the future. The area under consideration begins just west of the I-70/I-64 interchange in Wentzville and continues through the Stan Musial Veterans Memorial Bridge complex to the end of the express lanes in downtown St. Louis City.

Over the past few years, MoDOT has gathered feedback from thousands of members of the public, as well as area stakeholders and experts, to inform their planning for this critical part of our region’s infrastructure. Now they are hosting two public meetings to share what they have learned. Please mark your calendars and plan to attend whichever date works best for you!
