Upcoming Construction at Poplar Street Bridge
Work continues on the Congressman Clay Sr Bridge (the Poplar Street Bridge) as construction crews rebuild the ramps.
ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com), April 20, 2015 - The Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) is finalizing plans for continued work on the Congressman Clay Sr Bridge (the Poplar Street Bridge) for this spring and summer. MoDOT will close a second lane on the westbound Poplar Street Bridge starting at 8 p.m. Friday, April 24.
While the second lane is closed, construction crews will be working on completing the updated driving surface for the westbound Poplar Street Bridge. Two lanes closed on the westbound Poplar Street Bridge through late July, but the open lanes will change to the lanes with the new driving surface in late May.
MoDOT is anticipating completing and opening the new ramp from the westbound PSB to downtown and eastbound I-44 in early May.
On May 8, the ramp from the westbound PSB to southbound I-55 and westbound I-44 will close for a month, so crews can complete constructing the new ramp. They will demolish the ramp that weekend. Drivers will be able to use the new ramp to eastbound I-44 and make the U-turn at Washington Avenue to return to westbound I-44 and southbound I-55 during the month while crews are completing the new ramp to the south.
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.
