Highway 141 Construction Calls for Caution, Patience

In case you haven’t noticed, construction is in full swing on the new Route 141 between St. Luke’s Hospital and Olive Blvd. The Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) reminds us that this is an active construction zone involving heavy equipment, machinery and a variety of construction and utility work. Drivers, especially students, should be especially cautious and attentive to safety--for themselves, other drivers and for workers.

MoDOT Web site dedicated to the project provides the latest news, including road closures, photos, efforts to minimize environmental impact, etc. You can also sign up to be a Facebook fan or receive SMS text messages. A downloadable fact sheet on the project is also available.

The new Route 141 is scheduled for completion in the summer of 2012. Watch for more updates about detours and road closures in future issues of eNews.
