A heavy influence of motorcyclists will be out in force Saturday afternoon, as it is that weekend of one of the most infamous events is due to happen.  Expect the worst delays to happen between Route 3 and Highway 170 sometime between 15:00 and 16:00 and expect some stunting to go on.  If you don’t have a clue on this stuff, some of the videos that they posted on YouTube last year went viral and several have at least 100K views.

What they do is dangerous, so give them the right of way and pray that the stunts don’t get botched.

IDOT announced today that there will be some lane restrictions on the westbound lanes of 270 at the canal bridge starting at 11:00 Monday and ending by 05:00 Tuesday.  Pavement striping will be removed during this time, and the restriction is weather permitting.

Expect very heavy traffic this weekend, especially in the westbound direction, as MoDOT got the westbound lanes Highway 40 from the Poplar Street Bridge to Jefferson closed.
