The Missouri Department of Transportation will close a section of Interstate 70 tonight in Bridgeton between Interstates 270 and 170, for repairs to electrical power lines by Ameren.
The closure is needed so that Ameren can restore power lines that were downed by Friday night’s severe storm in North St. Louis County.
Starting at 12 a.m., eastbound I-70 will close at Interstate 270 and westbound I-70 will close at Interstate 170. Both directions of Interstate 70 will reopen at 4:30 a.m. Tuesday.
· Motorists traveling eastbound on I-70 should detour to I-270 northbound to I-170 south back to I-70 east.
· Motorists traveling westbound on I-70 should detour to northbound I-170 to I-270 southbound to westbound I-70.
