Road construction will require drivers on southbound Interstate 270 who normally use the exit ramps to eastbound and westbound Interstate 70 to detour for the next 10 weeks, starting Friday night.

During construction, drivers can use Highway 370 to southbound Highway 141 to access I-70.

The ramps will be completely removed and replaced, MoDOT said in a release Wednesday.

During peak hours, MoDOT noted, drivers may need to plan for delays of up to 20 minutes.
