As of Nov. 5, 2020, Veterans Memorial Parkway (the I-70 south outer road) between South Point Prairie Road and Schaper Road is currently closed and projected to remain closed 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.

Starting Monday, Jan. 4, May Road will be restricted to a one-lane flagging operation between Bear Creek Drive and W. Pearce Boulevard so Ameren can conduct a pole replacement project. On Monday, Jan. 11, May Road will close to thru traffic between Bear Creek Drive and W. Pearce Boulevard, and will be accessible to local traffic only. This closure will last for approximately two weeks, and will be limited to working hours Monday through Friday.
Ameren will be replacing poles along May Road, West Meyer Road and Wentzville Parkway though the first half of 2021. The purpose of these pole replacements is to increase capacity and loading for improved service reliability. Information regarding future closures will be provided as the work progresses.
