Work continues in North St. Louis County on the I-270 bridges at I-70. Crews have started bridge maintenance and repairs on the interchange.
In order for crews to complete this work safely, additional ramps will temporarily close.
Starting at 9 p.m. Wednesday, November 18, motorists traveling westbound on I-70 will not be able to access northbound I-270. In addition, at 9 p.m. on Thursday, November 19, motorists traveling in Bridgeton on St. Charles Rock (near the I-270 and I-70 interchange) will not be able to access I-70. Both ramps will reopen in one month. All work is weather permitting.
Currently, traffic on I-70 near I-270 has narrowed lanes in the day and up to two lanes closed at night. Drivers should expect congestion and delays, especially between 3 and 6 p.m. weekdays.
This project is scheduled to be complete by late December.
