MoDOT to close WB I-64/Rte 40 over Missouri River Sept. 27-28
Road closed for FHWA-recommended Daniel Boone Bridge inspection work

     ST. LOUIS - The Missouri Department of Transportation will close westbound I-64/Route 40 between Long Road in St. Louis County and Route 94 in St. Charles County for an inspection on Saturday, Sept. 27- Sunday, Sept. 28. Crews will close the road both days from 5:30 a.m. until 9 p.m. The entrance ramp from Chesterfield Airport Road to westbound I-64/Route 40 and the entrance ramp from Boone's Crossing to westbound I-64/Route 40 will also be closed. All work is weather permitting.

The closure is to allow bridge inspection crews to complete the annual Boone Bridge inspection and to complete a recent Federal Highway Administration recommended inspection for all truss bridges in the United States.  The recommended inspection is due to analysis of data from the Minneapolis I-35W bridge collapse in August 2007.

The signed detour for this closure is to take eastbound I-64/Route 40 to eastbound (northbound) I-270 and then take I-270 to westbound I-70.

Travelers can get up-to-the-minute traffic information on interstates or major state routes by dialing 5-1-1 from most cell phones; if 5-1-1 isn't available from your telephone, please dial 877-478-5511 (877-4STL-511)
