ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)-- MoDOT says your commute may be slower along I-270 southbound this year because of work between Manchester and Interstate 44.

MoDOT announced that work begins March 18th.

The goal is for it to be done by the end of the year with an added southbound lane on I-270, matching the new northbound lane installed last year.

During construction, traffic will be stopped daily at 10 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. while dynamite is set off.
