I-70 Shut Down, Schools Closed
As snow continues to pelt St. Peters, several important things are being shut down.
Winter weather is continuing to bombard St. Peters and the rest of Missouri.
The day-long snowstorm has forced the closure and cancelations of many things, chief among them Interstate 70.
The Missouri Department of Transportation has shut down I-70 from Kansas City to St. Louis. With visibility only getting worse as it gets darker outside, MoDOT has prohibited drivers for driving on 70.
"Heavy snow is making the highway impassable and whiteout conditions are causing poor visibility," MoDOT said in a press release. "MoDOT said this action would help keep motorists from becoming stranded on the interstate. The agency is continuing to plow statewide as conditions allow."
Along with the shutdown of I-70, most, if not all, schools in the St. Louis area are closed for Wednesday, Feb. 2.
In St. Peters, Fort Zumwalt, Francis Howell and Lutheran High School have been closed for Wednesday. In addition, Sanford Brown College, Superkids Daycare, St. Peters Academy of Dance and the Sylvan Learning Center are closed.
UPDATE: St. Charles Community College has canceled Wednesday classes.
St. Peters Municipal Court has also been closed for Tuesday night.
The St. Peters Rec-Plex has already made closures for Wednesday as well.
- All morning Aqua Aerobic classes canceled
- All morning Aerobic Group Exercise Classes canceled
- 5:15 a.m. RPX Cycling canceled
- Tot Drop closed on Wednesday morning
