This was announced this afternoon:

Despite questionable weather projected this weekend into the early part of next week, the final phase of the canal bridge implosion will take place on February 17 between 10:00 to 12:00.  The closure is weather permitting.  The implosion will bring down what is left of the green canal bridges:

With the closures, please refer to the detour routes that you may opt to use.  If all goes well, this should be the last full closure for this phase of the canal bridge project.  MoDOT will start closing lanes at 367 starting at 09:30 on the day of the implosion with all eastbound entry ramps at 367, Bellefontaine, Lilac, and Riverview shut down.

Viewing area has been set up on the Route 66 canal bridge (the silver one) – and viewers should be expected to bundle up as the morning temperatures are expected to be in the teens and low 20s.

Speaking of the implosion, these videos show the previous one:
