Mizzou fans may want to avoid Interstate 70 if they are heading down to Columbia for the game this weekend; MoDOT will be closing sections of the highway in St. Peters.
Crews will close two left lanes of westbound 70 between Mid Rivers Mall Drive and Route 79 starting at 9 PM Friday. One lane will open Sunday at noon, but the far left westbound lane will remain closed through Friday, October 4.
This work is part of a project constructing a diverging diamond interchange.
The project also includes the construction of an additional westbound I-70 lane between Mid Rivers Mall Drive and Route 79.
