ST. LOUIS (KTVI) – Crews will start rehabilitation work next week on the Interstate 44 bridge over the Meramec River, the Missouri Department of Transportation said Monday.

According to Andrew Gates, a MoDOT spokesman, crews are removing the surface of the bridge to repair the pavement beneath.

The work will begin Monday, July 13.

MoDOT will close two eastbound lanes of I-44 to set up a barrier wall overnight July 10, between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. One eastbound lane will stay closed around the clock for the next six weeks.

Work on the eastbound bridge is expected to be finished before Labor Day, Gates said. Work on the westbound bridge will begin after that.
