Missouri Department of Transportation crews plan to close the ramp from northbound Interstate 55/eastbound Interstate 44 to the Poplar Street Bridge on Monday and Tuesday for bridge inspections, the agency said.
Weather permitting, the ramp will be closed from 6 a.m. until 3 p.m. Monday, MoDOT said. If necessary, crews will also close the ramp from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday.
Motorists are encouraged to use the Stan Musial Veterans Memorial Bridge on Interstate 70; Interstate 255/Interstate 270; or the Martin Luther King or Eads bridges in St. Louis, the agency said.
To detour around the closure, drivers should continue on eastbound I-44 to Washington Avenue, take Lumiere Place Boulevard and turn onto the Martin Luther King Bridge into Illinois, MoDOT said.
Never miss a local story.
If the work is canceled due to weather, the inspections will be moved to Feb. 20 and 21, MoDOT said.
