Pavement repairs to snag westbound Poplar Street Bridge

June 13, 2013 

The Missouri Department of Transportation has announced it will close the two right lanes on the westbound Poplar Street Bridge and the ramp from the bridge to westbound I-70 at 9 p.m. Thursday for pavement repair work.

The ramp and all lanes will be reopened by 5 a.m. Friday.

The ramp to southbound I-55 will remain open, so drivers can detour using southbound I-55 to 7th Street, cross under the interstate, continue straight until Marion Street, then turn right and take northbound I-55 to westbound I-70.
