Route advice St Louis4444

My plans have changed ... so my route needs to change ... I will be approaching St Louis on I-55 and leaving on I-44.

Should I:
a) go through town and cross the river on I-55/I-70

b) take the north bypass and cross the river I-270

c) take the south bypass and cross the river I-255

I have been in St. Louis a long time ago but have forgotten traffic patterns and certainly don't know the road conditions ...

I travel that route quite often so I go I-55/I-70. There is a tricky area when you go over the bridge going westbound and it is easy to be in the wrong lane. If you decide to go that way be sure to look at it on google maps or some other map site. If I were you I would go either of the other choices. It is the shortest but it gets crazy on the west end of the bridge. Also the time of the day makes a difference as it does in any big city.

I second that.
It is real easy to end up in the wrong lane there. If you don't have a GPS with lane assist, do all the navigation before you get near the river. Believe the signs. There are places that seem counter-intuitive - like you go right to end up going what you know is left. It does work and we have passed there at all times of day and it has never been really bad.
