Metro-East News

Do you commute using the JB Bridge? Better find an alternate route home tonight.

Drivers using the Jefferson Barracks Bridge on Tuesday evening will need to find a new way to head east into Illinois.

The Missouri Department of Transportation announced on Twitter that the two left eastbound lanes of the JB Bridge are closed to repair a bridge joint.

MoDOT made the announcement at about 11 a.m., and said the two left lanes would be closed through the evening rush hour.
