Several road and highway projects are set to begin this week along three heavily traveled areas.
MoDOT will close lanes on the Poplar Street Bridge this morning starting at nine until 2:30 in the afternoon. One lane in each direction will be closed weekdays for the next three weeks for crews to inspect the bridge.
In St. Charles County, traffic along Interstate 64 will be slowed or stopped for periods of time this week so crews can blast rock near the Boone Bridge. Officials will help stop traffic at the designated times starting Tuesday. Blasting times will vary each day. Traffic is expected to be stopped for a maximum of ten minutes.
Close by, Olive street road will be closing between Centaur and Chesterfield Airport Road. St. Louis County tells KTRS News, Centaur will be closed for two weeks as a contractor installs a 90 foot-long storm drainage system near construction of one of two new outlet malls.
Drivers are asked to use the southern routes of Eatherton, Wildhorse Creek Road, Long Road and Chesterfield Airport Road.
Look for electronic message boards which will list any changes.
Two lanes will be closed at the Jefferson Barracks Bridge as crews work to replace and expansion joint. The workers are expected to continue their work until midnight.
