St. Louis Work Zones for April 18-24
Full interstate closure on I-64 downtown this weekend for Jefferson Bridge removal

   ST. LOUIS - The Missouri Department of Transportation will close the ramp from Pine Street to westbound I-64 at 9 a.m., Thursday as part of the Jefferson Avenue bridge closure. The Jefferson Avenue bridge over I-64 will close on Friday morning at 1 a.m., for approximately three months. Motorists can use Compton Avenue, 18th Street and 14th Street to detour around the closure.

MoDOT will close all lanes on I-64 in both directions between Hampton and Jefferson this weekend starting at 8 p.m., Friday. Entrance ramps to eastbound I-64 will be closed from McCausland to Ewing. In addition, entrance ramps to westbound I-64 will be closed from Broadway to Grand. All lanes and ramps on I-64 will reopen by 5 a.m., Monday, except for the ramp from Pine to westbound I-64, and Ewing to eastbound I-64. These two ramps will remain closed until Jefferson reopens in August 2013. 

In St. Louis County, blasting operations on southbound I-270 near Big Bend is cancelled Thursday due to rain in the forecast. Blasting is scheduled to resume Friday at 1 p.m., and will continue weekly, weather permitting.

This week, MoDOT is focusing on work zone safety awareness reminding motorists to pay attention, slow down or move over for flashing lights and eliminate distractions when driving through construction, so both highway workers and motorists stay safe. MoDOT makes every effort to ensure its work zones are clearly marked and let drivers know they are approaching construction on the road ahead. It is now the law for motorists to move over or slow down when they see MoDOT or emergency vehicles with flashing lights on the roadway.

For additional work zone information, go to http://www.modot.org/ . For real time traffic, visit http://www.gatewayguide.com/ . All work is weather permitting and may be shifted due to inclement weather.
