ST. LOUIS — There are some big changes for big trucks on Missouri interstates.

Starting Thursday, trucks weighing more than 48,000 pounds can no longer travel in the far left lane on highways in urban areas throughout the state.

This applies mostly to semi and heavy-freight trucks.

The rules will be enforced in Missouri's urban areas.

Trucks will not be banned from the left lane in rural parts of the state.
