Ramps onto Poplar Street Bridge closing through February
Starting Friday, drivers heading from south St. Louis into Illinois will no longer be able to access the Poplar Street Bridge.
The ramp from eastbound I-44/ northbound I-55 onto eastbound I-64, the Poplar Street Bridge, will close Friday, September 8 at 9 p.m. and remain closed through February.
The closure is part of ongoing work on the Poplar Street Bridge Project. The two right lanes on eastbound I-64 from 6th Street to Illinois Route 3 will also be closed for resurfacing, with two lanes remaining open.
Detour routes will be marked, though MoDOT is encouraging downtown drivers to consider I-255 or I-270, using 6th Street to access EB I-64, or using Tucker to access the Stan Musial Veterans Memorial Bridge.
