St. Louis — Drivers who plan to travel I-270 near Lindbergh Boulevard this weekend should be aware that the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) will close both eastbound and westbound I-270 intermittently for periods of 15-30 minutes, between 9 p.m. Friday, December 3, and 7 a.m. Saturday, December 4. Between these short closures, both directions of I-270 will be reduced to one lane. Drivers are encouraged to use alternate routes Friday night or give themselves extra time to drive through this area as the full closures will happen at various times.

The closures will allow workers to set beams (girders) in place that will support the bridge deck of the new southbound Lindbergh Boulevard bridge over I-270.

Drivers are encouraged to visit the I-270 North Project website at: to learn more about planned detours and details of the project, including a project overview and graphic displays of planned construction. Travelers can also contact MoDOT’s customer service center at 1-314-275-1500 or the I-270 North Project Team at:
