Welcome to the project website for the I-70 Regional Needs Assessment and Strategies Development Study, which will be developed as a Planning and Environmental Linkages (PEL) Study.
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 New Mississippi River Bridge complex to the end of the express lanes in downtown St. Louis City. The study area 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.
