Accidents in both directions have resulted in lane closures around the area where I-64, I-270 and Route 141 converge.
Traffic is extremely slow or altogether at a stop on sections of Highway 40/Interstate 64 near Highway 141 and I-270 due to accidents in both directions that have several lanes closed.

With construction of a new eastbound portion of the Interstate 64 Daniel Boone Missouri River Bridge slated to begin in late December, Chesterfield motorists will be able to view the designs and construction schedule for the project at a public meeting Nov. 13.
