ST. CHARLES COUNTY, MO (KTVI)- The demolition of the rest of the now unused 1930’s era westbound span of Daniel Boone bridge over the Missouri River is being postponed due to thunderstorms in the forecast for next week. The first half of the bridge was blasted and brought down  February 18, 2016.

MoDOT had planned to once again close the I-64 over the river between Boone’s Crossing in St. Louis County and Route K in St. Charles County on the morning of Wednesday, March 2, to allow for the rest of the demolition.  The work will be rescheduled.

Construction of a new eastbound bridge span was completed and opened to traffic in June 2015.  The 1980s built bridge was then rehabbed and opened to westbound traffic in November.
