ST. LOUIS Drivers who plan to use Jefferson near Interstate 44 this weekend will need to find alternate routes as MoDOT will close the roadway under the interstate to remove the eastbound bridge over Jefferson.

Crews will close Jefferson, in both directions, starting at 7:30 p.m. Friday, February 28, with all lanes being closed by 8 p.m. The ramp from eastbound I-44 to Jefferson, the ramp from westbound I-44 to Jefferson and the ramp from Jefferson to westbound I-44 will all remain open. Drivers on northbound Jefferson will not be able to access eastbound or westbound I-44. Northbound Jefferson will be closed at Russell, but local traffic only will be able to access the businesses further north, such as Johnny Brock’s and Randall’s.

Detours for the closure will be marked.

Jefferson will reopen by 5 a.m. Monday, March 2.
