ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - It's been two years in the making -- the opening of a "fly-over" ramp at the interchange of Route 141 and Interstate 44.  

MoDOT will close one lane northbound and southbound at 7 p.m. to prepare for Saturday morning's opening at 5 a.m.

Spokesman Andrew Gates says the new fly-over will benefit those accessing eastbound I-44 from southbound 141. 

“They don’t have to wait for a signal to get onto the interstate," he says. "They can just bear to the right and take the fly-over ramp to the right, right onto eastbound 44."

Gates asks that drivers slow down and get used to the new ramp. He says some are still having problems figuring out how fast to take another ramp put in place weeks ago, from northbound 141 to westbound I-44.
