I-255 at Telegraph will close tonight
St. Louis, MO – Crews will close all of I-255 under the Telegraph Road bridge tonight (Friday) at 10:00 so they can remove part of that bridge this weekend.
Traffic will be diverted onto the exit and entrance ramps at Telegraph; the highway should reopen by rush hour Monday morning.
The Telegraph Road bridge over I-255 is actually two bridges, one built in the 40s and the other in the 50s. The closing this weekend is part of a $7 million project to replace the spans with one new bridge.
The project is slated to be completed next spring.
