Crane strikes St. Louis area bridge

Apr 04, 2014 -- 11:36am


The Missouri Department of Transportation has closed all lanes of eastbound Interstate 64 at Route K in St. Charles County. The entrance ramps from Route 94, Route K and Research Park to eastbound I-64 are also closed.  Crews must remove a crane that broke free on the Missouri River. The crane is currently resting against a truss on the eastbound Daniel Boone Missouri River Bridge. The bridge and the interstate will remain closed in the eastbound direction until crews can remove the crane and inspect the bridge for damage. Motorists should use Interstate 70, Route 364/Page and Route 94 as alternate routes.  Even after the barge is removed from the eastbound bridge, only one lane will be open through the weekend. All lanes of eastbound I-64 will not reopen until early Monday, April 7.
