ST. LOUIS - The Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) and its contractor Millstone Bangert Inc, will permanently close the exit ramp from eastbound Interstate 70 to 10th Street in St. Louis City (Exit 249A) at 9 a.m. October 10, 2011.
The ramp will be removed permanently so crews can construct roadway and ramps between I-70 and the new Mississippi River Bridge. The new ramps from the bridge into the city will cross directly over the current location of the 10th Street exit ramps.
Drivers can use the Broadway exit (250A) to get into the city.
At the same time, several roadways on the west side of the interstate will also close as part of construction.
9th Street and 10th Street north of Cass Avenue will become two-way, to ensure traffic can get to businesses on those roadways.
