CHESTERFIELD — Repairs to a busy interstate highway bridge in suburban St. Louis will force its closure for two weekends in September.

The Missouri Department of Transportation needs to make additional repairs to the westbound Daniel Boone Bridge, which takes Interstate 64 traffic over the Missouri River between St. Louis and St. Charles counties. 

MoDOT said crews will close the bridge from 8 p.m. Sept. 10 to 5 a.m. Sept. 13, and from 8 p.m. Sept. 17 to 5 a.m. Sept. 20. The bridge was also closed last weekend.

Missouri Tiger fans heading to games in Columbia both weekends should plan alternative routes. Eastbound traffic will not be affected.
