The closure is for emergency maintenance on the Fred Hartman Bridge, effective immediately.

Three southbound main lanes of State Highway 146 from West Main to the Fred Hartman Bridge/Ship Channel will be closed through Monday at 5 a.m. The lanes are being closed so that crews can make repairs to an unexpected breakout of concrete from the road that happened Friday.

The entrance ramps from 146/State Highway 99 and Missouri Street will stay open.

Drivers should find alternate routes around the lane closures.
