MoDOT will close several ramps at westbound Interstate 70 and Earth City Expressway Friday, May 10 from 8 p.m. to 3 a.m. for pavement repairs on westbound I-70.  The closed ramps will include northbound and southbound Earth City Expressway to westbound I-70 and from westbound I-70 to southbound Earth City Expressway.  Three lanes of westbound I-70 will remain open to traffic while crews are working in the far right lane.

Motorists will need to use Route 370 as an alternate during the late evening hours on Friday night while these ramps are closed. 

Motorists are advised to slow down in the work zone and obey the posted 45 mph speed limit.  The pavement repairs are in the work zone for the I-70 Blanchette rehabilitation project.  For more information on the I-70 Blanchette Bridge project, go to www.modot.org/blanchettebridge .
