ST. LOUIS COUNTY, Mo. – There could be traffic trouble this week along a busy area in north St. Louis County.

Closures could impact drivers at the I-270 and New Florissant Road interchange. In fact, MoDOT has scheduled both day and nighttime closures.

They are scheduled to start Monday night and will continue through Saturday.

MoDOT shared that each night between 8:00 p.m. – 5:00 a.m. crews will completely close New Florissant Road between Dunn and Pershall Roads, basically under the 270 bridge. Up to two lanes on I-270 will also close as needed during those nighttime and overnight hours.

Then each day beginning Tuesday between 7:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m., crews are slated to close one lane in each direction on New Florissant Road in that immediate area. During that same time, one lane going each direction on I-270 at New Florissant Road is also scheduled to close as necessary.

MoDOT said there are detours for drivers using New Florissant Road. Those detours involve Dunn and Pershall Roads.

MoDOT also shared that the closures will allow crews to complete the final stages of construction for the new I-270 bridge over New Florissant Road. This is all part of the ongoing $278 million I-270 north project, focusing on infrastructure upgrades along this north county 270 corridors.
