MoDOT to make emergency repairs to I-70 Bridge
EARTH CITY, MO (KTVI)-All lanes of northbound Route 141/Earth City Expressway will be closed at Interstate 70 the weekend of August 9-11. Repairs to the I-70 Bridge need to be done after a truck struck the bridge and damaged it in late June.
The lanes will close at 8:00pm Friday and stay closed until 5:00am Monday. The ramp from eastbound I-70 to northbound Earth City Expressway and southbound Earth City Expressway to eastbound I-70 will also be closed. The far right lane on eastbound I-70 will also be closed.
Drivers are urged to use alternate routes including Route 364 or St Charles Rock Road to access Route 141/Earth City Expressway.
There is a concert at Verizon Wireless Amphitheater Sunday. Concertgoers will not be able to access westbound I-70 from Earth City Expressway after the concert. All northbound Earth City Expressway traffic will be forced onto eastbound I-70.
This closure had been scheduled for the weekend of August 2-4, but was rescheduled due to a rainy forecast.
