ST CHARLES - Repairs to the Interstate 70 bridge over Earth City Expressway planned for June 29 through July 1 have been cancelled due to the excessive heat forecasted for the weekend. The 100+ degree forecasts were a danger to the workers due to long shifts and the physical nature of the work.
The bridge repairs will still require two more weekends of closures to lanes on I-70 and ramps to Earth City Expressway. Work is currently planned for the weekend of July 20-22. More details to come on when the other weekend will be scheduled.
