Morning peak traffic patterns return to normal

As of 04:00 today, the southbound lanes of the Clark Bridge reopened to traffic, just in time for the Wednesday morning peak.  MoDOT crews spent Monday and Tuesday pumping floodwaters off the flooded section of 67 – which made the smoother Wednesday morning peak happen.

The locals in that Riverbend group that talks about traffic on 367 were so overjoyed – and not surprisingly all the admins here were as well.

 

During the closure, the westbound lanes of 270 often had a major choke point between Route 3 and the Canal Bridge, causing traffic to back up almost to 255. There were 3 or 4 incidents at Route 3 during the morning peak in that time frame.  One of the traffic reporters openly referred the morning peak on 270 during the Clark Bridge closure as “frustrating”.
