If you’re heading east this weekend, plan ahead. MoDOT will be closing lanes on Interstate 70 staring at 8 p.m. Friday, May 20:
All eastbound lanes, from Highway 94 to Fifth Street, will be closed.
Only one westbound lane will be open from Fifth Street to Highway 94.
Veterans Memorial Parkway will be open, but eastbound only from Fairgrounds Road to Fifth Street.
By 5 a.m. Monday, May 23, MoDOT expects to have all lanes open again – EXCEPT for the left lane in both directions. That closure will continue for approximately two months.
MoDOT suggests using Interstate 64, Route 364 or Route 370 as detours, with Veterans Memorial Parkway to access the local businesses.
