ST. LOUIS - The Missouri Department of Transportation will close the ramp from eastbound I-44 to Walnut this weekend.
Crews will close the ramp (Exit 291B) into downtown at 9 a.m. Friday, July 25 so crews can remove the remainder of the old ramp from the Poplar Street Bridge to I-44. The ramp will reopen by 5 a.m. Monday, July 28.
To detour around the closed ramp, drivers can continue on eastbound I-44 and exit at Washington. They can then take the U-turn ramp before Washington to get back to Pine Street or take Washington Street into downtown.
Information about additional closures or traffic changes will be released when available.
