ST. LOUIS (KSDK) – A truck accident has closed the Maritz overpass over Interstate 44, according to the Missouri Department of Transportation.

A truck struck the overpass Thursday morning.

The bridge will remain closed until it's repaired or until portions of the bridge are safe enough to reopen to traffic, according to MoDOT.

As an alternate route, drivers can use the north and south outer roads of Route 141 and Bowles.

I-44 lanes might also close during off-peak hours for inspection or repairs.
