As of Nov. 5, the City and its contractor have closed Veterans Memorial Parkway (the I-70 south outer road) between South Point Prairie Road and Schaper Road until June of 2021.
This closure is required for the construction of the retaining wall along Veterans Memorial Parkway for the new on- and off-ramps for eastbound I-70. This closure will also allow the crews to begin construction of the bridge over the railroad. There will be a signed detour route using I-70 between Highway W and Wentzville Parkway.
- Traffic west of Schaper Road will need to use Eastbound I-70 and Wentzville Parkway to access Veterans Memorial Parkway and South Point Prairie Road.
- Traffic east of South Point Prairie Road will need to use Westbound I-70 and Hwy W to access Veterans Memorial Parkway and Schaper Road.
In addition to the signed detours, Interstate Drive, will serve as an alternate route for the duration of this project.
