CHESTERFIELD, MO (KPLR) – Traffic tie-ups continue this weekend in Chesterfield. Late Friday, MoDOT closed the interstate at Chesterfield Parkway West and at Chesterfield Airport Road for demolition work. Crews have been working to tear down the Chesterfield Parkway West bridge and the old Chesterfield Airport Road bridge over the interstate.
As of Sunday morning, MoDOT has reopened all lanes of I-64 at Chesterfield Airport Road. However, all lanes in both directions of I-64 remain closed at Chesterfield Parkway West as crews remove the bridge over the interstate. Those lanes are scheduled to reopen by 5:00am Monday.
MoDOT urges drivers to avoid I-64 in this area. Use I-70 or the Page Avenue extension as alternate routes between St. Louis County and St. Charles County. There will be detours in place around the closures to still give drivers access to Boone’s Crossing and the outlet malls in the valley, but people should expect significant delays. Allow extra time to get to your destination.
Detours for the Chesterfield Parkway West bridge closure are:
• Eastbound I-64 – use Exit 19A (Chesterfield Parkway) and take a left onto Wild Horse Creek Road. Follow the road and take the ramp back onto eastbound I-64.
• Westbound I-64 – Use Exit 19A (Chesterfield Parkway West) and bear to the right. At Chesterfield Parkway, take the ramp back down to westbound I-64.
Detours for the Chesterfield Airport Road bridge closure are:
• Eastbound I-64 – Use Exit 14 (Chesterfield Airport Road). Take Chesterfield Airport Road to Spirit of St. Louis Boulevard and turn left. Follow the boulevard and take the ramp back to eastbound I-64.
• Westbound I-64 – Use Exit 14 (Spirit of St. Louis Boulevard) and take the roundabout. Follow the roundabout to the second leg and continue along the new north outer road for I-64. Take the ramp back onto westbound I-64.
