MoDOT is starting construction on Interstate 64 east of Kingshighway.
Three lanes of traffic will be open both east and westbound during the weekdays, but traffic will go down to one lane each way overnight.
MoDOT area engineer Deanna Venker says this is really the second phase of the new I-64 project.
“Just east of Kingshighway all the way down to Boyle was the last section of I-64 that didn't get done,” Venker said. “And you do have four bridges that need to be replaced, as well as an interchange.”
Got plans to travel to downtown St. Louis this weekend? Watch out for lane and road closures.
In addition to lane closures on the Blanchette Bridge, MoDOT will close the two right lanes on westbound I-64 across the Poplar Street Bridge approximately an hour after the start of Game 4 of the NLCS, which would be around 8 p.m. The lanes will remain closed until noon on Sunday.
