ST. LOUIS – MoDOT bridge maintenance crews will close the ramp from the Poplar Street Bridge to southbound I-55 at 12:01 a.m. Thursday and reopen it by 5 a.m. before the morning rush period.

Crews will repair pavement and joints on the ramp during the closure.

The detour for the ramp closure is to take I-70 WB to Salisbury Avenue, turn around on the bridge, and take eastbound I-70 to southbound I-55.

Motorists will experience delays during this work and are encouraged to use alternate routes. Plan ahead — for ways to avoid work zones, call 1-888-ASK-MODOT or visit our website at
