Sewer line rupture forces lane closures on EB I-70
The Missouri Department of Transportation is urging motorists to avoid eastbound Interstate 70 between Shreve and west Florissant Monday as repairs continue on a ruptured sewer line.
Deanna Venker, MoDOT area engineer for St. Louis City, says crews worked overnight to fix the sewer line. Concrete is curing and crews are working on road repairs.
More violent weather could be headed to the St. Louis metropolitan area.
Although as of 7 a.m. this morning, no severe weather warnings have been issued, the National Weather Service is expecting a significant severe weather outbreak today.
Meteorologist Melissa Byrd with the National Weather Service, says the weather will effect most of Mo. and Ill., especially over the eastern half of Mo. and the southern half of Ill.
