New Halls Ferry at I-270 to close in both directions starting Friday night

The closure will last from 8 p.m. Friday until 5 a.m. Monday as MoDOT crews complete the second stage of bridge removal.

FLORISSANT, Mo. — New Halls Ferry Road will be closed in both directions this weekend under the Interstate 270 bridge, between Dunn and Pershall roads, in Florissant.

The closure is scheduled to begin at 8 p.m. Friday and be completed by 5 a.m. Monday, according to the Missouri Department of Transportation. There will also be lane restrictions on east- and westbound I-270 during that time.

During the scheduled closure, road crews will be completing the second phase of bridge demolition to prepare for the new I-270 New Halls Ferry Road Bridge.

The bridge work is part of the $278 million I-270 North Project, which aims to reduce traffic congestion on the interstate as well as its interchanges and outer roads.

MoDOT encouraged drivers to use Dunn and Pershall roads between West Florissant Avenue and Old Halls Ferry Road to avoid the closure.
