Update: Phase III has been moved to June 25 through July 25

As part of their I-270 North Project, MoDOT is constructing a new West Florissant Avenue bridge over Interstate 270 in North St. Louis County. This project will take approximately four months and West Florissant Avenue will be closed at I-270 through the entire project, which will impact service on four MetroBus routes: #74 Florissant, #76 McDonnell-Waterford, #77 Village Square, #79 Ferguson.

The MoDOT project will impact the four MetroBus routes in different ways over the next four months. Check out the information below for specific information on your route.
