The Missouri Department of Transportation is planning a closure of eastbound Interstate 44/northbound Interstate 55 south of the Poplar Street Bridge from Friday evening until Saturday evening.
Crews are scheduled to close:
▪ Northbound I-55 at I-44, as well as the exit to 7th Street and Park Avenue/Broadway from I-44 at 8 p.m.
▪ The ramp from 12th Street and Geyer Avenue to eastbound I-44/northbound I-55 and the ramp from northbound I-55 to Gravois at 7 p.m.
During the closure, crews are set to remove the barrier along the interstate and re-stripe the roadway. Detours will be marked, MoDOT said.
All lanes are expected to be open by 7 p.m. Saturday, MoDOT said.
Crews are scheduled to continue working on the bridge project on eastbound I-44/northbound I-55 until next summer, but work will primarily be during off peak hours and in temporary lane closures, MoDOT said.
Work is weather permitting.
