Posted: Updated:

ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) – A month-long construction project to replace the driving surface along Interstate 270 will begin Tuesday.

Missouri Department of Transportation crews will work to replace the driving surface with a new structural overlay on the bridges over the intersections of New Florissant Road and New Halls Ferry.  Both bridges are more than 50 years old and have been classified as deficient.

During the first week of construction, MoDOT will close the following roads:

  • Tuesday, July 7, Pershall Road (the one-way outer road from New Halls Ferry Road to the Home Depot entrance) will close at 7 p.m.
  • Wednesday, July 8, Eastbound I-270 on and off ramps at New Florissant Road will close at 8 p.m.
  • Wednesday, July 8, New Florissant Road under I-270 from Dunn Road to Jean Drive will close at 11 p.m.
  • Thursday, July 9, Eastbound I-270 off ramp to New Halls Ferry will close at 8 p.m.
  • Thursday, July 9, New Halls Ferry Road under I-270 from Dunn Road to Pershall Road will close 11 p.m.
  • Friday, July 10, Eastbound I-270 lanes will be reduced to two through lanes and routed down and back up the interchange ramps at New Florissant Road and New Halls Ferry Road after 8 p.m.
  • Saturday, July 11, Westbound I-270 lanes will shift onto eastbound bridge at New Florissant Road and New Halls Ferry Road after 8 p.m.

Starting July 13, all closures will be in place and motorists should expect substantial backups along the interstate.

Motorists are encouraged to seek alternate routes to avoid the area during peak travel times.
