Interstate 70 is one of the oldest interstates in the nation. Construction bids on sections of I70 in St. Charles County were released during the Summer of 1956.

The highway comes from Kansas City through St. Louis on the way to Indianapolis. In St. Louis, it goes through parts of North St. Louis city and by Lambert Saint Louis International Airport before crossing on the Poplar Street Bridge.

It crosses the Missouri River on the Blanchette Memorial Bridge. Originally 4 lanes in St. Charles County, major development took place during the 1970s through 1990s on this section. It led to major widening, and building of a second span of the Blanchette Bridge in the late 1970s.

Between 1998 and 2005, major improvements occurred inside the 270-255 Loop. The problem known as the Bermuda Triangle was corrected, and several bridges and overpasses were replaced.

The section of I-70 in Downtown St. Louis is known as the Depressed Section. This section is only 4 lanes wide, unlike the rest of I-70. This section is occasionally treated as a north-south highway instead of east-west.

After crossing on the Poplar Street Bridge, it joins with Interstate 55 for 20 miles, until the split in Troy. After the split, instead of mile markers starting with 21, the mile markers are consistent with Interstate 270 in Illinois. As a result, I-70 is actually 5 miles longer than what is marked on the mile markers.
