ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

MoDOT has closed several lanes of I-64 in downtown and midtown St. Louis for emergency pavement repairs.

The agency closed two eastbound lanes at Vandeventer and the left westbound lane between 21st and Jefferson on Thursday night.

The westbound lanes are expected to reopen after 12:30 p.m. Friday. The eastbound lanes are expected to remain closed through Friday evening's rush period.

"Today we knew we'd have a dry day, so we had everybody prepped and ready to go and been out since first light this morning," MoDOT's Bob Becker said, noting drivers may remember similar work a month prior. "Actually the repairs we did last time they took hold, it's just further down the bridge deck the whole bridge deck is starting to come apart."

The measures are a temporary fix, as the bridge is slated to be resurfaced in May. 

 All lanes will be reopen when MoDOT completes the pothole repairs.
