The Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) will shut down one lane of the eastbound I-64 Daniel Boone Missouri River Bridge this week.

The lane closure will be between 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m from Monday through Thursday.

MoDOT Spokeswoman Linda Wilson-Horn says the closure isn’t expected to have a serious impact on traffic.

“In the middle of the day our traffic numbers are light enough that we don’t expect that to be a problem,”  Wilson-Horn says.  “Just use a little extra caution and be on the lookout for our crews that are going to be working along one of the lanes on the bridge.”

Wilson-Horn says that crews will be gathering information needed to complete a new $110 million I-64 Daniel Boone Bridge upstream of the existing two bridges.
