ST. LOUIS COUNTY, MO. (KPLR) – On Monday, January 27th, the Beaumont-Antire Road Bridge in south St. Louis County will be closed for replacement of the concrete beams that support the bridges road surface.

The St. Louis County Department of Highway and Traffic estimates the replacement will take around two weeks.

The 54-year-old bridge carries around 4,000 vehicles daily, and will cost the county $234,000 for the repairs.

Drivers can take one of two detours around the bridge:

Take Gravois Road to Route 141

It’s expected that the bridge will reopen no later than February 12, 2014.
