ST. LOUIS - The Missouri Department of Transportation and its contractor, Fred Weber Inc., will close the ramp from eastbound I-64 to southbound Jefferson Avenue just after midnight Monday morning, June 17.
The ramp will be closed for three weeks, while crews connect the new ramp to the interstate and to Jefferson.
While the ramp is closed, drivers can take the Grand exit from eastbound I-64, turn left on Chouteau and right on Jefferson, or take the 14th Street exit from eastbound I-64, turn right on Chouteau and left on Jefferson.
Crews are still planning to close two lanes on westbound I-64 to place girders for the new bridge starting at 7:30 p.m. Friday, June 14, with short term closures as they swing the girders across the interstate. All work is weather permitting and crews are projected to reopen all lanes by 7 a.m. June 15.
