Impact Statement (EIS)
Section 7 includes the far eastern end of
the I-70 corridor. Its 36 miles stretch from approximately
Route 19 at Montgomery City to the beginning of the St. Louis
Freeway System at Lake St. Louis.
Unlike most of the primarily rural
corridor, Section 7 is home to three more densely populated
and fast-growing cities: Warrenton, Wright City, and Wentzville.
Many factors will come into play as I-70 widening options
are explored, including environmental research, technical
and community input. Section 7 team
members will be working closely with the affected cities
ensure that improvement decisions work with their future
plans, while also meeting the needs of I-70 travelers.
