Due to weather-related reasons that caused the original date of February 17 to be called off, IDOT announced today that the new date for the final implosion will be February 19.  270 will be closed between Riverview to Route 3 starting at 10:00 and will reopen at 12:00.  The blast is scheduled to happen at 10:15.  MoDOT will be imposing lane restrictions starting at Route 367 as early as 09:30, and eastbound entry ramps to 270 from Route 367, Bellefontaine, Lilac, and Riverview will be shut down.

Please dress warm if you plan on attending the demolition by using the Route 66 canal bridge as the viewing site, as temperatures on Thursday morning are expected to be in the single digits with wind chills below zero.

Due to the admins having work/school during the time of the demolition, the facebook/twitter account may not be monitored during this event.  Please watch the feeds of @chrisregniertv and @marycooleyBnd on twitter on Thursday morning.
