ST. LOUIS — Construction work on the Missouri Department of Transportation's massive Interstate 64 project in St. Louis is ahead of schedule — but apparently not moving fast enough for some drivers.
Some are driving past barriers and using the not-yet-open part of the reconstructed highway. KSDK-TV reported Wednesday that one of the station's photographers captured police stopping a wayward driver near the St. Louis Science Center. Construction crews have reported several similar incidents.
MoDOT closed a four-mile section from Interstate 270 east to Interstate 170 last year. This year, the agency has been working to improve another four-mile stretch, from I-70 east into the city. The project is scheduled to be completed no later than the end of the year.
