I-44 (sometimes called "Highway I-44") is a major east-west Interstate Highway in the central United States. I-44 extends from Wichita Falls, Texas, on the western edge of the Dallas–Fort Worth metroplex to St. Louis, Missouri, at Interstate 55 (I-55).
Travelers that take this interstate to its eastern terminus will get a great view of the famous Gateway Arch in St. Louis.
I-44 is one of three interstates built to bypass Oklahoma City, along with I-40 and I-35. Through the city, I-44 is concurrent with Interstate 235 (I-235) and US 77; the route is often signed as "I-44/235" or "I-44/US 77".
While a shorter interstate running at 637 miles in length, I-44 is regionally important as a commercial conduit connecting Texas, Oklahoma, and Missouri. A significant portion of freight traffic passing through Oklahoma City is carried on I-44.
I-44 road conditions are influenced by a number of potential weather events travelers may encounter along the route. These events could include thunderstorms, hail, tornadoes, flooding, and depending on the time of the year, even snow and ice.
For example, road conditions on I-44 in Missouri, Oklahoma, and Texas can vary depending on the time of year and the weather. In the winter, road conditions can be icy and slick, so it's important to use caution when driving. In the summer, thunderstorms are common in all three states, which can cause flooding and hail. Tornadoes are also possible, so it's important to be aware of severe weather conditions when traveling on I-44.
While this region of the country is know for being relatively flat, I-44 passes through a curvy area of rolling hills between Waynesville, MO, and Rolla, MO. And of course, the beautiful Gateway Arch in St. Louis is a site not to be missed!
