(KMOV) – Two weekend construction projects could cause problems for drivers this weekend.
The Missouri Department of Transportation will close two and a half miles of Interstate 55 on Friday night. Both directions will be closed from River City Blvd. just outside the city limits to Broadway.
Crews will tear down two pedestrian overpasses. The highway is scheduled to reopen by Sunday evening.
MoDOT workers are also expected to close Dorsett Road at Interstate 270 on Friday. This closure is expected to last until about noon on Sunday.
Crews at that project will tear down the temporary overpass used while they build the two new overpasses.
