On behalf of the Missouri Department of Transportation St. Charles County Area Engineer Andy Tuerck and the MoDOT St. Charles Area Team, we are pleased to inform you of an upcoming improvement project on Interstate 70 between Wentzville Parkway and Route Z.
This project will upgrade the current four-lane section of I-70 between Wentzville Parkway and Route Z to a six-lane section. In addition, there will be an auxiliary lane (exit only lanes) between Route Z and Wentzville Parkway so I-70 will have eight lanes for this short section.
Funding has been secured for this work, and construction is currently scheduled to begin in the fall of 2023. I know the work is still several years away, but we felt it was important to begin the outreach effort and allow you all to learn more details and see our contact information on our website if you have questions as we move forward. Please feel free to forward this information to anyone who may be interested as well.

Missouri Intern Connect exists to build a bridge between employers and tomorrow’s workforce. Established by the Missouri Chamber of Commerce and Industry in 2018, this service helps Missouri students gain valuable career experience while simultaneously giving employers better access to the talent they need for tomorrow’s economy.
Missouri Intern Connect is a product of the Missouri Chamber’s Missouri 2030 strategic initiative. The research behind Missouri 2030 uncovered that workforce was one of the main concerns for our state’s employers — many organizations were struggling to find the talented workers they needed. In addition, the state overall was experiencing a troubling trend: Many young workers were choosing to leave Missouri for opportunities elsewhere.
Missouri Intern Connect addresses these issues by providing an easy way for students to connect with valuable internship experiences inside Missouri. These experiences give young people a connection to employers and lead to job opportunities which provide a powerful incentive to stay in Missouri.
