UPDATE (5:15 a.m.) - A MoDOT spokesperson said westbound I-44 is expected to reopen around 5:30 a.m.

 

Westbound Interstate-44 between Conway and Lebanon is closed. 

Multiple KTTS listeners said a tractor-trailer fire is to blame.

Authorities are having westbound drivers get off the interstate around the Phillipsburg exit, or about the 123 mile marker.

There have been no reports of problems in the eastbound lanes.
