A westbound LIB lane remains closed during Stage 4

ST. LOUIS, MO (November 7, 2021): Starting Monday morning, the left westbound lane of Lambert International Boulevard (LIB) will be closed just west of St. Louis Lambert International Airport’s (STL) Terminal Two (T2) garage exit. This is occurring as Metro Transit begins stage four and the third week of its biennial inspection of the elevated MetroLink tracks that run just east of STL’s T2 to STL’s Terminal One (T1). This inspection is a 12 stage process.

Stage four commences at 7 a.m. Also during stage four, the westbound traffic exiting from T2’s Arrivals Drive and Departures Drive will merge into one right turn lane at the light. (see the accompanying diagram for the traffic control plans). Stage four work is scheduled to be finished by 2:30 p.m. Tuesday (November 9).

As the inspection moves to other sections of the MetroLink tracks, the public can expect other various lane closures as well as rerouting of traffic. Announcements by STL will be made prior to any traffic pattern changes. This MetroLink project is now scheduled to be completed on November 20.
