I-70 reversible lanes close this week

St. Louis – The reversible lanes on Interstate 70 near downtown St. Louis will be closed for two months beginning this week.

The closure starts Wednesday. MODOT says workers will rebuild the Madison Street bridge over the freeway as part of the new Mississippi River Bridge project.

The lanes will close again in mid-June so crews can build a new St. Louis Avenue bridge.

Also, the exit ramp from the I-70 reversible lanes to Broadway Avenue is closed after inspectors found structural problems with the Broadway overpass this weekend.
