Crews have removed affected vehicles and plowed eastbound lanes of Interstate 44. All lanes are now open.
Crews are urging drivers to avoid travel or if you have to travel east use extreme caution.
Many major routes in Missouri are still covered or partly covered.
Good news if you’re headed east, but there is still precipitation falling. Take it slow and use caution if you must be out, particularly in the SL area. https://t.co/60p7crvjkt

Road crews say there’s still a 6 to 8 hour delay near St. Louis..
And if you are already near St. Louis a detour at exit 251 is advised.
