Section of I-55 Closed Until Monday

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Bridge demolition work has forced the shutdown of a section of interstate 55 in the city this weekend.

I-55 will be closed in both directions between Carondelet and the 4500 block of Broadway until five o’clock Monday morning.

Crews are tearing down the Delor Street Bridge this weekend.  Delor will be closed at I-55 until the new bridge is completed in early October.

The Missouri Department of Transportation has the following suggestions:

“Motorists are encouraged to use I-44 as an alternate.

Motorists can use the following altenates during the I-55 closure:

  • Southbound I-55 exit at Broadway and turn left. Turn right onto River City Casino Blvd. Continue to Carondelet Ave. and follow to I-55.
  • Northbound I-55 exit at Carondelet Ave. and turn right. Continue onto River City Casino Blvd. Turn left onto Broadway and follow to I-55.”
