Road Work on Poplar Street Bridge Impacts Weekend Travel

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - If you're planning to head downtown or over to Illinois this weekend, you may want to consider alternate routes or means of transport.

That's due to scheduled work on the Poplar Street Bridge according to Andrew Gates, spokesperson for the Missouri Department of Transportation.

“You should consider using I-70, I-55/I-270, using ridesharing or carpooling options or taking Metro as we will be closing eastbound I-64 between Jefferson Ave and Illinois Route 3 starting Friday evening at 7 pm,” he says.

The ramps from Pine and 6th Streets to eastbound I-64 will also be shut down.

Crews will replace an expansion joint on the PSB in work that was postponed due to the fear of bad weather earlier this month.

All impacted lanes should be re-opening by 6 am Monday.
