Another Poplar Street Bridge Ramp to Close Today
By Tom Weber, KWMU
St. Louis, MO – The Missouri Department of Transportation will close the ramp from the Poplar Street Bridge to southbound Interstate 55 at noon Monday.
Crews will close the ramp for repairs; it's the third of four ramp connections to the bridge MO-DOT plans to close this summer for resurfacing.
The southbound I-55 ramp carries about 25,000 cars a day; MO-DOT says it will be closed for four weeks.
The official detour is:
- Exit the bridge at westbound I-70, take that to Madison Ave., go north on 10th Street to St. Louis Avenue, left at St. Louis Avenue, left at 11th Street, south on 11th street to eastbound I-70/southbound I-55.
