Highway 64 reopens hours after trailer catches fire

All lanes of westbound Interstate 64 are open hours after a tractor trailer caught fire.

Just before 6 AM a tandem tractor trailer caught fire on the shoulder of the road. The fire did not spread beyond the trailer, but crews are exercising caution because the second trailer contains hazardous materials. Fox 2 reports the material has the potential to cause an explosion. Drivers were backed up for miles while crews worked to extinguish the fire.

MoDOT is planning to close westbound I-70 between the Poplar Street Bridge and Pine Street from 8 p.m. Saturday until noon on Sunday.  One lane of eastbound I-70 and the Eads Bridge will also be closed for that time and eastbound 70 could close for 15-minutes at a time during the work.  Its all part of the Park Over the Highway project linking the Arch grounds with downtown.
