The Grindstone Parkway bridge over U.S. 63 will shut down Monday morning for repairs.
According to the Missouri Department of Transportation, the repairs are preventative and intended to "extend the life of the structure."
The bridge will be fully closed, but the highway off-ramps will remain open. This means drivers may have to use Stadium Boulevard or Discovery Parkway to get to their desired side of the bridge.
An official from MODOT said "the community understands this bridge is a priority, and fixing the bridge deck is needed."
One resident begged to differ.
"I'm going to have to find different places to go," Samantha Ferguson said. "Yeah, I'll be able to get on 63 and go out to Broadway, but what about the places I need to go down here?
"I get my medicine down at Walmart right down Grindstone," she added, "so I'm going to have to detour around everything now. It's going to be awful."
The bridge is expected to be shut down until mid-August but open before local schools start again.
