ST. LOUIS - The Missouri Department of Transportation and its contractor, Fred Weber Inc., will close I-64 in both directions in St. Louis City between Jefferson Avenue and Hampton Avenue starting at 8 p.m. Friday, April 19.
The on ramps to eastbound I-64 will be closed from McCausland to Ewing. In addition, the on ramps to westbound I-64 will be closed from Broadway to Grand.
The Pine Street ramp to westbound I-64 closes at 9 a.m. April 18. It will remain closed until the Jefferson Bridge reopens. In addition, the Ewing Street ramp to eastbound I-64 will remain closed after Friday night's interstate closure until the Jefferson Avenue bridge reopens.
All lanes and ramps on I-64, except for the Ewing ramp and the Pine Street ramp, will reopen by 5 a.m. Monday, April 22.
The Jefferson Avenue bridge closes at 1 a.m. Friday, April 19. Once the Jefferson Avenue bridge closes, drivers can use Compton Avenue, 18th Street and 14th Street to detour around the closure. A detour map for the project is here: http://www.modot.org/stlouis/major_projects/documents/JeffersonDetourRoute1.pdf
During the three-month bridge replacement project, crews will also close up to two lanes on I-64 in both directions weekdays between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. They may close two lanes on I-64 in both directions around the clock on weekends.
MoDOT will make every effort to have all available lanes and ramps open on eastbound I-64 at least an hour before any Cardinals home game, and will make every effort to keep all available lanes and ramps open on westbound I-64 open at least an hour after home games end.
There will be a three-week closure of each ramp at Jefferson during the project. Both ramps will not be closed at the same time. The exact dates for the ramp closures have not been determined yet.
