Planned overnight closures of westbound Interstate 64 through downtown St. Louis will have to wait a few days.
The Missouri Department of Transportation was set to close all the lanes on the double-deck structure between Broadway and 21st St. tonight, and re-open them by 4 a.m. Wednesday. But high temperatures have prevented MoDOT crews from completing work that's needed to allow traffic to drive on newly resurfaced roadways.
The ongoing work on the driving surface for Interstate 64 through downtown means lane closures again this weekend.
Starting at 10 a.m. tomorrow, the Missouri Department of Transportation will shut down all westbound lanes of the double-deck structure between Broadway and 21st Street. Two eastbound lanes may also close for safety reasons.
The ramps from 10th and 14th streets to westbound I-64 will remain open. All lanes, except for the farthest left, will re-open by Monday's rush hour.
MoDOT confirms in a press release today that two lanes will be open to traffic tomorrow morning:
"MoDOT will reopen two lanes of westbound I-64 before 6 a.m. Wednesday morning. After reopening, crews will return to the regular construction schedule for westbound I-64. One lane on westbound I-64 will remain closed around the clock. A second lane closes daily from 10 a.m. until 3 a.m. the next morning."
If you use Interstate 64 westbound to get to work in the morning, you'll need to find alternate routes.
The Missouri Department of Transportation says it will be unable to re-open the westbound lanes of the highway on the double decker structure before rush hour tomorrow morning because repairs were more extensive than anticipated.
Drivers traveling on Interstate 64 in both directions this weekend will face lane closures and possible delays.
The Missouri Department of Transportation will close all the lanes and ramps on eastbound I-64 between Jefferson and 6th Street at 8 p.m. Friday, Jan. 27. The ramps from Pine St., Forest Park Ave. and Ewing to eastbound I-64 will close at 7 p.m. on Friday.
The Missouri Department of Transportation has canceled a planned weekend closure of eastbound Interstate 64 between Jefferson and the Poplar Street Bridge because the forecast includes a chance of ice.
