ST. LOUIS - The ramp from eastbound Interstate 44 to Walnut Street will be closed this weekend, the Missouri Department of Transportation said Tuesday.

According to Andrew Gates, a MoDOT spokesman, work crews will close the Exit 291B ramp into downtown Friday at 9 a.m. so crews can remove the remainder of the old ramp from the Poplar Street Bridge to Interstate 44. The ramp will reopen by 5 a.m. Monday, July 28.

Commuters on eastbound I-44 can use the exit at Washington Avenue as a detour to reach downtown.
