This work is all part of a $420 million freeway reconstruction contract awarded to Gateway Constructors by the Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission in December. The project will completely reconstruct I-64 from west of Spoede Road to east of Kingshighway Boulevard, a distance of about 10 miles. It will create a freeway-to-freeway interchange at I-170; rebuild 29 bridges and all 12 interchanges. One lane will also be added in each direction from west of Spoede Road to I-170.
