MoDOT to close two lanes on NB/SB Route 141 over the Meramec River June 7- 10
Drivers who use Route 141 near the I-44 interchange for weekend travel will need to consider alternate routes again this weekend, as MoDOT will close two lanes on the route in each direction for work on the bridge over the Meramec River.
Crews will close the two right lanes of northbound Route 141 at the Meramec River starting at 7 p.m. Friday, June 7. They will close one right lane southbound at 7 p.m., and will close center lane southbound at 9 p.m.
During the closures, crews will be completing preventative maintenance and making repairs to the bridge. This is similar to the work completed last weekend, but on the right side of the northbound and southbound bridges.
Although traffic will still be able to travel northbound and southbound across the bridge, drivers can expect slower travel and may want to allow extra time, or use I-270 as an alternate route. Drivers will still be able to access both eastbound and westbound I-44 from Route 141 in both directions.
All lanes on Route 141 are scheduled to reopen by 5 a.m. Monday, June 10.
