Dates change again for I-64 lane closures
The schedule for the complete shutdown of Interstate 64 westbound this week has been revised once again.
The Missouri Department of Transportation was set to close the westbound lanes of the highway from Broadway to 21st St. Thursday night at 8:30 p.m. and re-open the two right lanes on Friday morning; then shut down the entire highway again from Friday morning at 10 to 5 a.m. Monday.
Here are the changes:
- One lane on westbound 64 will close on Thursday at 10 a.m. and re-open at 3 a.m. Friday. That same lane will close again at 10 a.m. Friday and re-open Saturday morning at 10 a.m.
- All lanes and ramps on the double deck structure between Broadway and 21st St. will close at 8 p.m. Saturday night. Two left lanes will re-open by noon Sunday
With the right lane of the highway closed, the ramps from 10th and 14th streets will be closed around the clock. Alternatives to access I-64 westbound from downtown include Pine St., Jefferson Ave., or the Market/Compton interchange.
In addition, only the 9th St. exit will be open full-time. The ramp from westbound I-64 to 21st/Market will be open during the morning rush hour - 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. weekdays.
