    Route 141 & Interstate 44 Design-Build –
    St. Louis County, MO

    Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT)

    This Design-Build Project was undertaken to improve the mobility of the Interstate 44 interchange at Missouri Route 141 and along Route 141 north of the interchange. The project included two new bridge structures within the interchange, improvements to ramp configurations, addition of roundabouts, relocation of a Park-n-Ride lot, and improved turning movements (ThrU Turns) at intersections along Route 141 north of the interchange. The new bridge structures consist of a fly-over ramp bridge which will carry vehicles from southbound Route 141 to eastbound Interstate 44 and a C-D road bridge over Route 141. The flyover bridge is a 12-span chorded precast prestressed concrete girder structure, partially within a tightly curved horizontal alignment. As a subconsultant, EDSI’s responsibilities for this Design-Build project included surveying (elevation checks, bridge clearance checks, verification of provided surveys), right of way acquisition documents, signal redesign (3 intersections, including temporary), and Traffic Control Plans for project limits south of the Meramec River. Prior to coming to EDSI, Jean LaKemper, PE, EDSI Structures Group Manager, and Moshe Cohen, PhD, PE, SE, EDSI Structural Engineer, were the Structures Lead and Structural Design Engineer for the Project, respectively.
