MoDOT has released their plans to make adjustments to planned interstate closures on Sunday. MoDOT will open one lane going eastbound on I-64 to 6th street at least one hour before game time. All westbound lanes and ramps are scheduled to be open. 

Fans heading back into Illinois after the game will need to use Memorial Drive to get onto the Poplar Street Bridge, or take Broadway to Marion to access northbound I-55.

As always the MetroLink is an alternative to driving. MetroLink will be extending its hours of operation and adding additional trains to accommodate Cardinals fans.

Fans can watch the game from home on TBS and join the Twitter conversation using #WildCards, #12in12, #Postseason and #WorldSeries.
