(KMOV.com) – A section of I-70 in downtown St. Louis will be closed for part of the weekend.
The Missouri Department of Transportation said all westbound lanes will be closed between the Poplar Street Bridge and Pine Street, so work can be done on the new Walnut Street bridge. The highway was originally supposed to be closed Feb. 1, but MoDOT delayed the closure.
The affected section of highway will be closed from 8 p.m. Saturday until 12 p.m. Sunday. MoDOT also said eastbound lines will be closed for up to 15 minutes at a time.
