The Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT), in collaboration with their regional planning partners, East-West Gateway Council of Governments (EWGCOG) and Metro has embarked on a unique endeavor to develop a transportation vision of the I-70 corridor. The study area is from just west of the I-70/I-64 interchange in Wentzville and continues through the City of St. Charles to the New Mississippi River Bridge complex to the end of the express lanes in downtown St. Louis City. The study area along Interstate 70 is densely developed with a mix of residential, commercial, and industrial land uses. The study is being managed by MoDOT and is being closely coordinated with EWGCOG and Metro and is drawing on past regional transportation plans.
MoDOT, East-West Gateway Council of Governments (EWGCOG), Metro and the City of St. Charles values your input and appreciates your participation as during this high-level study. Please plan to join us for the first of two public meetings to be held as part of this study.
In recent years the region has undertaken a variety of transportation studies within the I-70 corridor to review specific modes (freight, Bus Rapid Transit (BRT), highway). None of these, however, have focused on developing a comprehensive multi-modal vision for one corridor like I-70. As the region looks toward the future, there is increasing focus on sustainable mobility, economic competitiveness, and the relationships between community characters and transportation along the corridor. Interstate 70 is critical to the region’s transportation network. MoDOT, Metro and the East-West Gateway Council of Governments have initiated a study which will develop a strategic plan for the future of the I-70 corridor and they want your input.
