St. Louis —Drivers who regularly use New Florissant Road (Route N) near I-270 should be aware of upcoming day and night closures during the week of February 5. Between February 5 and February 11, the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) will intermittently close I-270 and New Florissant Road at I-270 in both directions. Closures are as follows:

  • Each day, between 7 a.m. and 3 p.m., crews will close one lane on New Florissant Road in each direction. One lane on eastbound and westbound I-270 also will be closed as necessary.
  • Each night, between 8 p.m. and 5 a.m., crews will close all lanes on new Florissant Road between Dunn and Pershall roads. Up to two lanes of I-270 in each direction also will be closed as necessary.

The closures will allow work crews to complete the final stages of construction for the new I-270 bridge over New Florissant Road. Detours for New Florissant Road are as follows:

  • Southbound traffic will bypass construction by traveling west on Dunn Road, south on Hanley Avenue/Graham Road and east on Pershall Road back to New Florissant Road.
  • Northbound traffic will bypass construction by taking Pershall Road east to access the U-turn bridge near Washington Street/Elizabeth Avenue to travel west on Dunn Road back to New Florissant Road.

The closure and construction work are part of the $278 million I-270 North Project infrastructure upgrades. To stay updated on the status of this closure and to view a project overview and graphic displays of planned construction, please visit the I-270 North Project website at: www.i270north.org. Travelers can also contact MoDOT's customer service center at 1-314-275-1500 or the I-270 North Project Team at: I270North@modot.mo.gov.
