MoDOT to close westbound I-44 between Stan Musial VMB, I-55 split this weekend

ST. LOUIS – People heading downtown this weekend should consider taking Metro or allowing themselves extra time as MoDOT will once again close more than two miles of westbound I-44 in the city.

This is the third weekend crews will be removing and replacing pavement at the bottom of the Poplar Street bridge ramp to westbound I-44 /southbound I-55 and replacing joints along the bridge over 3rd Street.

Starting at 8 p.m. Friday, July 21, MoDOT will close:

  • All lanes of westbound I-44 at the Stan Musial Veterans Memorial Bridge to the Poplar Street Bridge.
  • All lanes of westbound I-44 and southbound I-55 from the Poplar Street Bridge to the I-44/I-55 split.

Drivers will only be able to continue on I-70 to the Stan Musial Veterans Memorial Bridge or exit to Tucker.

In addition, the following will close at 7 p.m. Friday, July 21:

  • The I-70 express lanes.
  • The ramp from Washington Avenue to westbound I-44.
  • The South Memorial Drive ramp to westbound I-44/southbound I-55.
  • The ramp from the westbound Poplar Street Bridge to southbound I-55/westbound I-44.
  • The ramp from the westbound Poplar Street Bridge to Walnut/eastbound I-44.

All lanes will reopen by 5 a.m. Monday, July 24.

To detour from westbound PSB to southbound I-55/westbound I-44, drivers should continue on I-64 and exit at 21st Street/Market. Then take Market to Jefferson and Jefferson south to the I-44 interchange.

To detour from I-70/westbound I-44, drivers should take Tucker to Lafayette to the I-55/I-44 interchange.
