The Time Has Come For I-64 / 40
It’s here. No matter if you like it or not, the new I-64 reconstructino project is here. I, for one, prefer two and a half years of traffic hell to six or seven years of half-hell, but I work in Clayton and live in U. City so those of you about to be seriously affected by this can feel free to ignore me. The simple closure of this one lane (the westbound ramp from Hanley southbound) should nonetheless have an enormous inpact on traffic. With all the westbound traffic leaving Clayton at 5 PM going over to Brentwood and the Forest Park Parkway, those streets will be very crowded at evening rush hour. I think its time for the bar owners of Clayton to launch a renewed push for the after-work crowd.
