Overnight work planned on Poplar Street Bridge next week

The Missouri Department of Transportation has planned overnight roadwork Monday through Wednesday on eastbound Poplar Street Bridge over Interstate 44, the agency said.

Crews are scheduled to close several lanes and ramps as workers remove a barrier wall on the bridge as part of ongoing construction, MoDOT said.

The work is scheduled from 8 p.m. each night until 5 a.m. the following day. During the work:

▪  The ramp from eastbound I-44 to Walnut Street will be closed.

▪  One lane on eastbound I-44 under the Poplar Street Bridge will be closed; crews will close the interstate for up to 15 minutes while removing the barrier from the bridge above.

▪  The ramp from Marion Street onto eastbound I-44 will be closed.

▪  One lane on eastbound Interstate 64 between 6th Street and the Poplar Street Bridge will be closed.

All work is weather permitting and may be adjusted due to inclement weather, MoDOT said.
