The commute is about to get a little easier for employees and patients heading to Washington University Medical Center. After more than a year of construction activity, the improved Interstate 64/Highway 40 interchange at Tower Grove Avenue is scheduled to open the afternoon of Friday, Aug. 29.
The opening of the new Tower Grove and improved Boyle Avenue ramps marks the final phase of the project, which also included:
– New bridges over I-64 at Taylor, Newstead, Tower Grove and Boyle avenues
– A new roundabout on Tower Grove south of I-64
– New and realigned signals to coordinate interchange traffic
– New or resurfaced highway pavement between Kingshighway Boulevard and Sarah Street
Construction began in January 2013. BJC HealthCare and Washington University School of Medicine provided assistance to the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) in creating the new interchange to improve traffic flow around the medical center and in surrounding neighborhoods.
