MoDOT to close southbound I-55 ramp to Bates this week

ST. LOUIS – Drivers who use southbound Interstate 55 should be aware of an upcoming ramp closure this week, weather permitting.

Crews will close the ramp from southbound I-55 to Bates (Exit 203) Wednesday, April 10 at 9 a.m. for one week. Crews will be updating shoulders, curbs, drainage and guardrail along the ramps.

While Bates is closed, drivers can detour to Loughborough Ave (Exit 202C), turn left and follow Loughborough to S. Broadway, turn left and follow South Broadway back to Bates.

The ramps from Carondelet to southbound I-55 and the ramp from 4500 Broadway to southbound I-55 are projected to reopen before this ramp closes.
