RICHMOND HEIGHTS, MO (KPLR)-Work continues on northbound Big Bend between Manchester Road and I-64/40 in Richmond Heights on a storm sewer line causing some delays. Each day from 9:00am-2:00pm, one or two northbound traffic lanes will be diverted while repairs are made. Drivers should expect delays and may want to consider alternate routes.

Earlier Monday, there was an erroneous report that a storm sewer has collapsed in the area. On Monday afternoon, MSD clarified that the work is not a collapse and that crews have been working since Saturday to reinforce a storm sewer in the area.  Daily lane closures are expected while crews are working, but lanes reopen in the evening to traffic.
