ST. LOUIS — Reversible lanes on Interstate 70 near downtown St. Louis will be closed for two months beginning this week.
The Missouri Department of Transportation said the closing is needed as workers build the Madison Street Bridge over the interstate.
The closing starts Wednesday.
The work is part of the construction of the new Mississippi River Bridge connecting St. Louis to Illinois.
The lanes will reopen in late April, but close again in mid-June for six weeks. That will allow construction of a new St. Louis Avenue bridge.
