ST. LOUIS, Mo. ( - The Big Bend Bridge over Interstate 270 is completely closed.

The Missouri Department of Transportation closed the bridge beginning at 8 p.m. Wednesday, with all lanes closed around 5 a.m. Thursday.

The bridge will remain closed for three months as crews remove and replace the bridge deck. It is expected to reopen before the new school year begins in August. 

Additionally, crews may occasionally close up to three lanes on northbound and southbound I-270 overnight between 8 p.m. and 5 a.m. 

Drivers will still be able to use the ramp from the east side of the bridge to northbound I-270 as well as the ramp from southbound I-270 to the west side of the bridge.
