ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) – The Missouri Department of Transportation and its contractor Millstone Bangert will close the exit ramp from eastbound Interstate 44 to southbound Interstate 270 Friday night, weather permitting.
Crews will also close the southbound I-270 exit ramp to eastbound I-44 this weekend. Both exit ramps will be closed due to the close distance to the work zone on southbound I-270 at I-44 and Rott Road. Crews will have temporary lane closures on southbound I-270 between I-44 and Gravois Road (Route 30) this weekend for bridge rehabilitation.
Here's the breakdown:
