Construction at Poplar Street Bridge
Work continues on the Congressman Clay Sr Bridge (the Poplar Street Bridge) as construction crews rebuild the ramps.

Construction Closes Poplar Street Bridge
ST. LOUIS, MO, (, April 20, 2015 - Drivers headed to Friday's or Saturday's Cardinals home games should not be significantly impacted this weekend when the Missouri Department of Transportation and its contractor, Millstone Weber Inc., close northbound I-55 and eastbound I-44 downtown.

Crews will be placing girders over the interstate for the new PSB ramp to southbound I-55, starting at 8 p.m., Friday, May 15, after the Cardinals game has started. To do that, crews will close all northbound lanes and ramps on I-44 between 7th and Park and the Martin Luther King Ramp.

They will also close all lanes and ramps on northbound I-55 from Gravois to the Poplar Street Bridge, as well as the on ramps from Marion (Soulard) and 12th/ Gravois to northbound I-55. All northbound lanes and ramps will reopen by 11 a.m. Saturday, May 9, before Saturday's home game. This work is weather dependent.

Eastbound I-64 through downtown and to the Poplar Street Bridge will remain open in both directions. Eastbound I-44 will be open past the MLK bridge and westbound I-44 and southbound I-55, including the ramp from the PSB to southbound I-55 will remain open.

For real time traffic, visit All work is weather permitting and may be shifted due to inclement weather.

Although the bridge will remain open through the construction, drivers may want to consider using alternate routes between Illinois and St. Louis City. The new Stan Musial Veterans Memorial Bridge, the Eads and the Martin Luther King bridge are all options during the work on the Poplar Street Bridge.

All lanes on the westbound PSB and the ramp from Illinois Route 3 to the westbound PSB will reopen by early July.
