MoDOT restarts bridge maintenance in St. Louis City Saturday

ST. LOUIS – Work on a section of I-44/I-55 will significantly impact drivers in downtown St. Louis this weekend, closing all but one lane between Broadway and Park for about a day.

The work will also have long-term impacts on daily commutes around the downtown areas.

The work is restriping westbound I-44/southbound I-55 to continue bridge renovation work and is weather permitting. Starting at 5 a.m. Saturday, March 18, crews will:

  • Keep one lane open on westbound I-44 between Broadway and Park
  • Close the ramp from southbound Memorial to westbound I-44/southbound I-55
  • Close the ramp from the westbound Poplar Street Bridge to westbound I-44/southbound I-55. The ramp from westbound Poplar Street Bridge to Walnut will also be closed The detour for the ramp closure will be to take eastbound I-44 to Washington Avenue, make a U-turn under the interstate and get back on westbound I-44/southbound I-55.
  • Close the ramp from westbound I-44/southbound I-55 to 7th Street. The detour for this ramp is to take the 12th Street/Gravois exit.

The restriping is scheduled to be complete by 8 a.m. Sunday, March 19. If the work is unable to be completed on Saturday because of inclement weather, it will be rescheduled for 5 a.m. Sunday to 5 a.m. Monday.

When the lanes and ramps reopen, drivers will have only one lane open on the ramp from the westbound Poplar Street Bridge to westbound I-44/southbound I-55. They will also have three 10-foot lanes on westbound I-44/southbound I-55 between the Poplar Street Bridge and the I-44/I-55 interchange. The lanes will remain in this configuration until the bridge work on westbound I-44/southbound I-55 is completed in July.
