ST LOUIS - Two left lanes of Interstate 64 before and after the Daniel Boone Missouri River Bridge will be closed overnight on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday this week, the Missouri Department of Transportation said. No lanes on the bridge will be closed or shifted.
According to MoDOT, the lane closings begin Wednesday, July 30 at 7 p.m. An additional lane will close at 9 p.m. to shift traffic on the St. Louis County side of the bridge. The lanes will reopen by 5 a.m. Thursday morning.
Two lanes will close Thursday, August 2 at 6:30 p.m. to pour concrete for the new bridge's columns. Those lanes will reopen by 5 a.m. Friday.
The left lane will close Friday, August 3 at 5:30 p.m., with an additional lane closing at 7 p.m. The lanes will reopen by 10 a.m. Saturday.
Crews will work through the night and open the lanes each of the following mornings, but those lanes will be narrowed to 11 feet and shifted to the left. The speed limit will be 50 mph and the lanes will remain this way until the new eastbound Boone Bridge opens.
The project is expected to be finished by October 2015. For more information on the project visit www.modot.org/boonebridge.
