Riverbend motorists and St. Louis commuters who regularly use Dunn Road along I-270 should be aware that MoDOT will soon close the eastbound lane of Dunn between Graham and Washington. For seven months a single lane will carry westbound traffic only.

MoDOT spokesperson Neena Thompson tells the Big Z the work is mostly being undertaken for safety.

play for Thompson's comments

The westbound I-270 exit to New Florrisant Road will close permanently on March 1st. Detour routes for the closure will be marked. This is the first part of the project that will convert this portion of Dunn Road to Westbound traffic only. For more information on the ongoing I-270 North project visit i270north.org
