MoDOT to shift traffic on I-64/I-55 across Mississippi River (PSB) next week

ST. LOUIS – Illinois commuters and other drivers who regularly use the Interstate 64/Interstate 55 bridge across the Mississippi River (the Poplar Street Bridge) should be aware of upcoming long-term traffic shifts starting next week.

On Tuesday, December 26, crews will close an additional eastbound lane across the Mississippi River starting at 8 p.m. Only one lane will be open across the river until 2 p.m. Wednesday, December 27. During the work, crews will be shifting barrier walls and restriping lanes. When the second lane reopens, the open lanes across the bridge will be shifted to the two middle lanes. The far right and far left lanes on the eastbound bridge will be closed.

On Wednesday, December 27, crews will once again close an additional eastbound lane on the bridge to install barrier wall along the far left lane, starting at 8 p.m. Only one lane will be open across the rive . When the second lane reopens by 2 p.m. Thursday, December 28, the far left lane on the eastbound bridge will remain closed around the clock until the end of December 2018.

On Thursday, December 28, crews will close two westbound lanes across the bridge at 8 p.m. One lane will reopen by 5 a.m. Friday morning; the far left westbound lane across the bridge will remain closed until the end of December 2018.

When the traffic shifts are complete, one left lane on the westbound and eastbound lanes of the Poplar Street Bridge will be closed around the clock until December 2018. These lane closures will let crews prepare the bridge for a scheduled “slide” to widen the bridge inlate March, and then will let crews construct and fill in the new eastbound lane for the bridge. In addition, one right lane will be closed around the clock on the eastbound PSB to let crews complete placing the new surface – that lane is projected to reopen sometime in February 2018.
