VALLEY PARK, Mo. – The southbound lane on the Maritz overpass over Interstate 44 has reopened, the Missouri Department of Transportation said Friday.

Lanes in both directions were closed Thursday after a truck struck the overpass.

A crew has determined the overpass is safe to handle one-way traffic.

MoDOT says the northbound lane will remain closed until damage sustained to the overpass is repaired. Drivers who need to travel from the south outer road to the north outer road, will need to cross at Bowels.
