ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com)-- A stretch of Interstate 64 in St. Louis City will be closed this weekend so crews can remove a bridge.
Both directions of the highway between Grand and Interstate 44, including the ramps from Broadway, 10th Street and 14th Street, will begin shutting down around 6:30 p.m. Friday, depending on weather conditions. About 30 minutes later, crews will start closing the lanes in both directions, with a full closure expected by 8 p.m. Detour routes for the closure will be marked.
The ramp from westbound Interstate 64 to Market closed at 10 a.m. Thursday so equipment could be staged to demolish the Ewing Bridge.
The interstate and ramps should be open by 5 a.m. on March 1. One eastbound lane between Compton and Ewing will remain closed until late July, when Ewing reopens.
