Any issues with St. Louis

Any problem going I-70 through St. Louis, heading West, with a toad and 44 ft. coach? 4-5 years ago I made the mistake of going I-70 East through the city and almost didn't make it with all the construction. I'll be in the area in October.

Thanks

AS long as you stay away from the hours of 6-9 AM and 3:30-6 PM Monday thru Friday, you should have minimal problems. I would suggest 6 AM on a Saturday, then you will have no problems at all Otherwise expect a lot of stop and go and a bunch of drivers who got their licenses from a cracker jack box and think they own the road. Get in the middle lane and stay there and pray that there are no accidents, the last one I saw on I270 South blocked all 5 lanes for several hours. We have lived in St Louis for 15 years before we moved and I did all I could to avoid the highways at the hours I mention.

We stopped just out of st. Louis on the west side a couple of weeks ago. We drove into town and our car for some sightseeing and did not like the traffic. When we got back in the motorhome we took the loop around

Normal rush hour traffic can be hectic, if you are following I-70 east or west you might want to take the I-270 bypass on the north side. If you are traveling I-44/64 east or west you might want to take I-255 on the south side. Both will take you around the city traffic, but you will miss the downtown riverfront and Arch. You will, however see the mighty Mississippi River. Happy traveling.

Note: all the Interstate roadways are in very bad shape and laced with potholes. Be prepared to have your motorhome shaken to it's core.

Headed east on 70 we took the 40/64 exit at Wentzville and I don't remember the road being that rough. IT is multi lanes and traffic at morning and evening rush hour would not be fun. we went thru around 10am. It joins up with I 70 or I 64 on the other side of the Mississippi River. you do get a view of the Arch to your left headed east.

Go through using any route on Sunday morning - no problems. Edmund Babler near the city is a very nice stopover if you're going to tour the area. Big, manicured, grassy sites.

40/64 is almost all new pavement until you get near downtown. Depending on where you are headed, I find this route not bad for St Louis.

Drove thru St Louis last month (west to east). Took the 370 N bypass at St Peter, to the 270 N, to Illinois, then the 55 S to I64. Very easy, with almost no traffic, by comparison. Its longer, but OH SO much easier.

Thanks for all the input. I'll be arriving around mid day on a Friday so probably take I-270 to avoid the traffic.
