MoDOT to Close Route 30 Bridge Over I-44 in St. Clair for Rehab Work
FRANKLIN COUNTY - Drivers who use the Route 30 bridge over Interstate 44 in St. Clair should determine alternate routes now as the bridge will close for rehabilitation next week.
The Route 30 bridge and all entrance and exit ramps from I-44 to Route 30 will close at 7 a.m. on March 2. Demolition of the bridge deck will take place March 3 to March 5 during nighttime hours.
Lane closures are as follows:
• I-44 eastbound - 9 p.m. Friday, March 3 to 6 a.m. Saturday, March 4
• I-44 westbound - 9 p.m. Saturday, March 4 to 6 a.m. Sunday, March 5
• I-44 eastbound and westbound - 10 p.m. Sunday, March 5 to 5 a.m. Monday, March 6
During demolition, traffic on I-44 will be reduced to one lane in each direction. I-44 traffic will be detoured up and over the existing ramps at Route 30.
There will be no through traffic allowed on Route 30. A signed detour will be in place directing traffic to use Route 47 as an alternate route.
The bridge and all ramps will reopen by early May.
All work is weather permitting.
The bridge work is part of Missouri’s Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) for fiscal year 2022 and included in Missouri Governor Mike Parson’s 2019 Focus on Bridges Program.
