ST. LOUIS — Two westbound lanes of Interstate 64/55 at the Poplar Street Bridge will be closed for about a month starting this weekend to repair the bridge.
An IDOT press release said two right lanes of westbound I-55/64 will be closed just west of the 3rd Street exit. The lanes will close Saturday at 7 a.m. and will remain closed for about a month.
The press release said the lanes will be closed so crews can repair the "badly deteriorated joints and wearing surfaces of the bridges in this area."
IDOT said it expects the closures to cause extensive delays during morning rush hour and asks drivers to consider alternate routes including the I-70 Stan Musial Veterans Memorial Bridge.
