next project

Roberts Bank Rail Corridor Combo Design-Build Project

As part of the New Mississippi River Bridge project, the I-70 Connection creates a gateway linking East St. Louis, Illinois, with St. Louis, Missouri, and beyond.

Interstate 70 is an important part of ongoing reconstruction of the region’s transportation network. As a critical link in the New Mississippi River Bridge (MRB), the I-70 Connection brings design of a new interstate highway connection through a former heavily industrialized area with remnants of railroad yards and stockyards.

Featuring dual structures with spans up to 280 feet long approaching the MRB in Illinois, the Connection is complete with new interchanges, roadways and pedestrian walks.
