COPY-Busy St. Louis weekend to include some detours

ST. LOUIS (AP) - There's a lot going on in St. Louis this weekend, but getting there won't always be easy.

The Rams open the NFL season Sunday against Philadelphia. The Cardinals host the Milwaukee Brewers all weekend. And Forest Park on Sunday will be the site of a big ceremony commemorating the terrorist attacks.

Drivers can expect some detours.

The Missouri Department of Transportation says eastbound Interstate 270 will have one lane closed from Lindberg to I-170 Friday night through Monday morning. A second lane will be closed parts of the weekend.

Crews will close one lane of westbound I-70 at I-270 throughout the weekend for pavement repair. Some ramps will be closed as a result.

Bridge work will require some southbound lanes of I-170 near Hanley Road to close through the weekend.
