Daniel Boone Bridge in Chesterfield to close for weekend

Friday, January 7, 2011 | 11:03 a.m. CST

CHESTERFIELD — Motorists traveling between St. Louis and St. Charles counties this weekend might need to consider alternate routes.

The Missouri Department of Transportation says the westbound lanes of the Daniel Boone bridge will close for maintenance from about 8 or 9 p.m. Friday until around 5 a.m. Monday. The bridge carries Interstate 64 traffic over the Missouri River.

Drivers are encouraged to use one of three other bridges that cross the river in the St. Louis area — on Interstate 70, Route 364 or Highway 370.

The work is preventative maintenance on the Boone bridge, which carries about 75,000 cars daily.
