(KMOV) -- The Missouri Department of Transportation announced a plan to close a part of Interstate 270 later this week.
The far right lane and shoulder of northbound Interstate 270 at Route 370 will be closed Wednesday and Thursday so crews can gather measurements needed to repair a bridge girder that was damaged by a large silo truck that hit it last week. The work will take place between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. each of these days.
The far left lane of the Route 370 ramp will remain closed in order to reduce the amount of travel and the load on the ramp.
MoDOT advices drivers to slow down when approaching the Missouri Bottom Road exit. From there, drivers can take the right lane for the Missouri Bottom exit or the center lane on-ramp to northbound Interstate 270.
