ST. CHARLES, Mo. (KMOV.com) – One lane of eastbound Interstate 70 will close for three to four hours in Wentzville Monday night.
Starting at 9 p.m., Wentzville police will close the right lane at Foristell to remove the remains of a burnt semi-truck.
The semi-truck caught fire on the interstate around 7:30 a.m. No one was injured during the fire.
Police said drivers should expect delays as only the left lane will be open.
Police officials said the fire department used a lot of water to get the fire out, which then turned to ice. The ice forced MoDOT crews to respond to salt the area, which resulted in the interstate being closed Monday morning.
The semi-truck was carrying non-toxic materials at the time of the fire.
