MoDOT to Close I-64 March 7-10 to Remove Tower Grove, Boyle Bridges
Motorists headed to the Scottrade Center this weekend for Arch Madness or other activities in the city should be aware that all lanes and ramps of Interstate 64 will be closed in both directions between Kingshighway and Forest Park Avenue at 8 p.m. Friday, March 7, to remove Tower Grove (shown above) and Boyle Bridges.
ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com), March 5, 2014 - Motorists headed to the Scottrade Center this weekend for Arch Madness or other activities in the city should be aware that all lanes and ramps of Interstate 64 will be closed in both directions between Kingshighway and Forest Park Avenue at 8 p.m. Friday, March 7.
This closure is in conjunction with the City of St. Louis, to remove the pedestrian overpass over I-64 at Spring Avenue during the same timeframe.
While the interstate is closed, crews will remove the Tower Grove and Boyle bridges over I-64 as part of a project to construct a new interchange at Tower Grove and Boyle and replace four bridges over the interstate. The ramps from McCausland, Skinker, Hampton, Kingshighway, and Papin, to eastbound I-64 will be closed during this time. In addition, the ramps from Pine, Jefferson, Market and Grand to westbound I-64 will be closed during this time.
Crews will reopen the interstate and all ramps by 3 a.m. Monday, March 10.
MoDOT will keep three lanes open in each direction on I-64 between 5 a.m. and 7 p.m. weekdays. Overnight and weekends, the department will close up to two of those open lanes for construction work. As crews work to keep the roadway safer, please slow down or move over to give them room to work.
The closure is weather permitting, and may be delayed due to temperatures or significant precipitation.
The detour for westbound I-64 will be to get off the interstate at the Forest Park Avenue exit (exit 38A) and follow Forest Park Avenue to Kingshighway. After turning left onto Kingshighway, drivers will follow Kingshighway back to the interstate. The detour for eastbound I-64 will be to get off the interstate at the Hampton Avenue exit (exit 34B), turn right on Hampton and follow it to eastbound Interstate 44. Drivers can then take I-44 to the Poplar Street Bridge. Detour maps are available on-line at http://tinyurl.com/i64detour0113
Tower Grove and Boyle will remain closed over the interstate until bridge work is completed in mid-June. Drivers can use the new bridges at Taylor and Newstead to detour around the closures. Cyclists and pedestrians can use Taylor, the pedestrian crossing between Kingshighway and Taylor, or Newstead to detour around the closure.
