ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOX) — The Missouri Department of Transportation will close all lanes and ramps of Interstate 64 in both directions downtown between Hampton and Forest Park Parkway at 8 p.m., Friday. Motorists attending this weekend’s downtown festivities are urged to use I-44, I-70 or I-55.

While the interstate is closed, crews will remove the Taylor and Newstead bridges over I-64. The ramps from McCausland/Skinker, Hampton and Kingshighway to eastbound I-64 will be closed during this time.

In addition, the ramps from Pine, Jefferson, Market and Grant to westbound I-64 will be closed during this time.

Crews will reopen the interstate and all ramps by 3 a.m. Monday.

The detour for westbound I-64 will be to get off the interstate at the Forest Park Avenue exit (exit 38A) and follow Forest Park Avenue to Kingshighway. After turning left onto Kingshighway, drivers will follow Kingshighway back to the interstate.

The detour for eastbound I-64 will be to get off the interstate at the Hampton Avenue exit (exit 34B), turn right on Hampton and follow it to eastbound Interstate 44. Drivers can then take I-44 to the Poplar Street Bridge. Detour maps are available on-line.
