ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – There could be delays for drivers heading into or out of downtown this weekend.
MoDOT is completely closing a stretch of Interstate 64/Highway 40 for the entire weekend to demolish two bridges in the Grove neighborhood.
The bridges coming down are the Boyle and Tower Grove Avenue bridges.
The Tower Grove bridge has been closed since January for utility work. Crews will close the Boyle Bridge after the morning rush.
MoDOT says it will shut down I-64 between Kingshighway and Forest Park Avenue at 8:00pm Friday and reopen by 5:00am Monday.
The two bridges will be torn down and rebuilt.
This is the latest part of ongoing construction in the Grove area near the new Cortex development close to the Barnes-Jewish Medical Center.
Two other bridges – Taylor and Newstead – have already been demolished and rebuilt.
