Home » Guides » Missouri » Route 94

Missouri Route 94 could be considered a Great River Road for the Missouri River. The 136.31 mile route generally follows the course of the river east from Jefferson City to West Alton. Beginning at a cloverleaf interchange where U.S. 54 & 63 split, the state highway travels a rural course beside the bluffs rising north of the Missouri River through Wainwright, Tebbetts and Mokane to Steedman. East from there the state highway travels a hilly route through Portland to Montgomery County.

The state highway again travels along bluffs north of the Missouri River from Bluffton east to Gore. Route 94 directly parallels the river east from there to Bernheimer ahead of the flats north of Goose Island. East from La Charrette Bottom and Marthasville, the road again meanders into hills north of Hancock Bottom and west of Darst Bottom. This stretch brings Route 94 through Weldon Springs State Wildlife Area and the greater St. Louis metropolitan area.

Emerging from the wilderness area, Route 94 transitions into a multi-lane arterial through Weldon Spring and a full freeway as part of the Missouri 364 alignment through south St. Peters. Route 364 branches southeast to Veterans Memorial Bridge into St. Louis County while Route 94 turns northeast along 1st Capitol Drive into St. Charles. An overlap with Business Loop I-70 lies ahead of Lindenwood University, with Route 94 traveling the street grid of St. Charles north from Downtown to an interchange with Route 370. A rural arc takes Route 94 across the flats between the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers to U.S. 67 just south of the Clark Bridge into Illinois.
