Updated March 29 with information about blasting and bumped up for visibility.
Planning to take Interstate 64 through the Central West End this weekend? You'll need to find another route.
Some drivers who normally use Interstate 64 to get downtown will have to find alternate routes this weekend.
Weather permitting, the Missouri Department of Transportation will shut down a portion of Interstate 64 at 8 p.m. Friday to demolish the bridges carrying Taylor and Newstead avenues over the highway.
Eastbound traffic will have to exit at Hampton, and westbound traffic at Forest Park Avenue.
