MoDOT: Emergency Repair Closes Two Lanes on WB I-255 at Jefferson Barracks Bridge

ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOX) — Traffic heading into Missouri across the Jefferson Barracks Bridge will be backed up this afternoon and evening.

MoDot has closed the two right lanes of westbound I-255 near Koch Road, so crews can replace an expansion joint.

“Sometimes with winter, and wear and tear on the bridge something become loose,” MoDOT Spokesperson Kara Price told KMOX. “Our crews are always checking the bridges, making sure everything is safe.”

The closure is expected to be in place until midnight.
