St. Louis, MO – The new Dougherty Ferry bridge over I-270 in west St. Louis County will re-open two weeks early.
Transportation officials will cut the ribbon on the new $6.1 million bridge on Monday (8/20). The project took almost three months to complete.
The span was widened from four lanes to seven; additional turn lanes were added from northbound and southbound I-270 onto Dougherty Ferry.
