ST. LOUIS – Two lanes on eastbound Interstate 255 will be closed on the Jefferson Barracks Bridge, beginning at 7 p.m. Friday, March 28.

Only one lane will be open as Missouri Department of Transportation crews work on preventative maintenance, replacing joints on the bridge. All westbound lanes will remain open. Drivers headed eastbound should consider alternate routes because extensive traffic backups are expected.

Alternate routes to Illinois include I-64 and I-55.

The eastbound lanes are scheduled to reopen by 5 a.m. Monday, March 31.
