Heads up for drivers heading into and out of downtown this weekend. I-64 will be closed in both directions between Jefferson Avenue and Hampton starting at 8pm Friday night.

The Jefferson Avenue bridge over the highway will also close at 1 am Friday, as MoDOT crews work to remove the bridge and replace it.

The Jefferson Avenue bridge is more than 50-years old. It will be replaced with a wider, more well-lit bridge with wider sidewalks and bike lanes.

Eastbound traffic along Highway 40 will be forced to exit at Hampton Avenue and take I-44 into the city.

Westbound traffic will be diverted onto the 2100 Market Street exit and then onto Forest Park Parkway.

All ramps and lanes are schedule to be opened by 5am Monday. And don't worry about the weather: MoDOT says the work will be done rain or shine.

Two iconic buildings bulldozed

What goes up forces another building to come down--one in Dogtown the other downtown.

The Bowling Hall Of Fame is coming down to make room for the first phase of construction for Ballpark Village outside Busch Stadium.

The old KTVI (Channel 2) building at Hampton and Berthold avenues in southwest St. Louis is being bulldozed to make way for a Mercedes Benz dealership. Tri-Star Imports, now in Ellisville, plans to open a car lot there later this year.

The Berthold building survived a tornado in 1959 which took out the station's tower and caused damaged to the building.

The station moved to Maryland Heights in 2008.
