ST. LOUIS - The Missouri Department of Transportation will close a pair of ramps on the Poplar Street Bridge on Wednesday and Thursday so crews can complete preventative maintenance on those ramps.

According to Andrew Gates, a MoDOT spokesman, said crews will close the ramp from northbound Interstate 55 to eastbound Poplar Street Bridge from 8 p.m. Wednesday to 5 a.m. Thursday. Commuters should use westbound I-70 to Salisbury Avenue, turn around on the bridge, and take eastbound I-70 to get onto the PSB.

On Thursday, work crews will close the ramp from eastbound I-70 to the bridge between 8 p.m. and 5 a.m. on Friday. The detour will be to continue southbound on I-55 to 7th Street, cross beneath the interstate, take a right on Marion Street, and then take northbound I-55 to get onto the PSB.

All work will be completed, weather permitting.
