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.
