I-64 Traffic to be Stopped for Rock Blasting Near Boone Bridge
Blasting at 2p.m. Tuesday Will Slow Traffic for Five Minutes

ST LOUIS - Rock blasting along Interstate 64 at the St. Charles County end of the Daniel Boone Missouri River Bridge will occur Tuesday, April 2, weather permitting.  I-64 traffic will be slowed and potentially stopped for 5 to 10 minutes at 2 p.m. Only one more blast will occur after Tuesday's.  It will be either Friday or early next week, weather depending.

            At the time of the blast, local law enforcement vehicles and construction vehicles will slow I-64 traffic.  Eastbound traffic will be slowed starting at the Route 94 interchange.  Westbound traffic will be slowed starting at the Boone's Crossing interchange.  Entrance ramps at Missouri Research Park and Chesterfield Airport Road will be momentarily closed during the daily blasting operations.  In addition to the slowdown of I-64 traffic, KATY Trail users will also be stopped on the trail adjacent to the bridge.

            The blasting work is necessary to build the new shared use path from the end of the new eastbound bridge down to connect to the KATY Trail in St Charles County. 

            Construction of the new I-64 Daniel Boone Bridge began in January.  The new eastbound bridge will be opened to traffic in late 2014.  In 2015, the current eastbound bridge will be rehabilitated.  By the end of 2015, westbound I-64 traffic will be moved to this bridge and the current 1935 westbound bridge will be removed.

            Motorists are advised to slow down in the work zone.  For more information on the I-64 Daniel Boone Missouri River Bridge project including drawings of the new bridge, go to www.modot.org/boonebridge .             ###
