Why is MoDOT doing this project?
The purpose of this project is to enhance capacity and safety of this important existing interchange to accommodate the current and future needs of citizens, visitors and businesses within the area.
How will this project benefit me?
The Route 210 and I-435 interchange currently serves nearly 100,000 drivers per day. This project will enhance capacity of I-435 by providing three continuous through lanes in each direction throughout the interchange.
Route 210 is an important freight corridor that serves multimodal freight hubs and was last summer from two lanes to four lanes from Eldon Road to MO 291. The new interchange will be able to accommodate the increased truck and vehicle traffic of Route 210.
This project will also remove the two uncommon high speed ramps to enhance driver expectancy and safety. Ramp reconstruction will enhance safety by providing increased storage and better turning movements. This project also includes the alteration of access at Randolph Road which will result in fewer traffic signal challenges and will improve safety.
What is the project timeline?
The project is scheduled for letting in June 2016 and construction is scheduled for fall of 2016.
How is this project funded?
This project will use MoDOT funding through the Statewide Transportation Improvement Program, which is a combination of state and federal funding.
