ST. LOUIS — Because of inclement weather expected this weekend, the Highway 40 (Interstate 64) closure in the city, scheduled to begin today at 6:30 p.m., has been delayed for two weeks, until July 23, the Missouri Department of Transportation said Friday in a news release.
A second, separate scheduled closing to set girders for the 22nd Street bridge, also will be rescheduled, MoDOT said.
ST. LOUIS — A section of Highway 40 (Interstate 64) in downtown St. Louis will be closed in both directions this weekend while repairs are made to the Ewing Avenue bridge that crosses over the interstate.
Missouri Department of Transportation crews will begin closing entrance and exit ramps and then lanes of I-64 between Grand Avenue and Interstate 44 about 6:30 p.m. Friday. The interstate is expected to reopen by 5 a.m. Monday.
Detours will be marked for those traveling eastbound and westbound, but drivers are encouraged to consider alternate routes to downtown.
The work marks the first of two I-64 closures scheduled this month. The second, to set girders for the 22nd Street bridge, is planned for the weekend of July 23-26.
