ST. LOUIS – Drivers who regularly use Pershall Road between New Halls Ferry Road (Route AC) and West Florissant Avenue should be aware of a lane closure starting next week. Starting at 7 a.m. on Wednesday, June 1, the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) will close the westbound lane of Pershall Road for six months.
During the six-month closure, only one eastbound lane in this section of Pershall Road will remain open to traffic. After construction is completed, this portion of Pershall Road will reopen as a two-lane eastbound only outer road.
Signed detours will direct motorists from New Halls Ferry Road (Route AC) to access Dunn Road to travel westbound to West Florissant Avenue.
The closure and construction work are part of the $278 million I-270 North Project infrastructure upgrades.
