New I-64/Kingshighway interchange now open

Employees, patients and visitors to the Washington University Medical Center have a new and improved commute with the Aug. 18 opening of the redesigned and rebuilt I-64/Kingshighway interchange.

The new configuration uses a single-point interchange to manage traffic flow across the overpass and onto and off of the highway.

Crews will continue work on the Kingshighway median and sidewalks for about another month.

Since Kingshighway serves as the “front door” to the campus, the Medical Center received approval from MoDOT to incorporate decorative upgrades that will match the existing medians and pedestrian walkways at the Medical Center.
