MARYLAND HEIGHTS, MO (KMOX)-Having already dealt with lane closures on southbound I-270 near Dorsett, motorists will soon be dealing with northbound work.

The latest round of work begins at 4 p.m. Sunday, That's when MoDOT will close the ramp from Dorsett to northbound 270. 

At 6 p.m. crews will begin closing the northbound lanes of 270 between Dorsett and I-70. By Monday morning northbound traffic will be shifted onto the southbound lanes, leaving three narrow lanes in each direction.

That configuration will remain in place until mid to late next month.

Big morning and evening rush hour backups are expected. MoDOT's suggesting you use 141, I-170 or Lindbergh as alternates.

Rodger Brand and Maria Keena will keep you up to date on traffic there, and throughout the area, on Total Information AM and PM.
