Several lanes of eastbound Interstate 255 on Jefferson Barracks Bridge at the Mississippi River will be closed this weekend.

Beginning at 7 p.m. Friday, only one lane of traffic will be open on eastbound I-255 while crews replace bridge joints, weather permitting, according to the Missouri Department of Transportation.

All lanes are expected to be open by 6 a.m. Monday.

No work is planned on the westbound lanes of the bridge.

Motorists heading east from Missouri to Illinois are advised to use the I-55/I-64/I-70 Poplar Street Bridge in downtown St. Louis as an alternate route.
