(KMOV) -- The New Tucker Interchange off of Interstate 70 will finally open.
Starting Thursday, drivers coming to the city from the west on Interstate 70 will be able to take the new interchange to Tucker Boulevard into Downtown St. Louis.
For years, crews have been working on this project which connects to the new Stan Musial Veteran’s Memorial Bridge.
"Taking an area that has been semi-closed for a number of years, opening it up and just making it very easy to get into the downtown St. Louis area… and particularly to events like the Cardinals and the Rams and the Blues and many, many other things that happen in St. Louis,” Said Richard Bradley of the Board of Public Service.
After Thursday’s ribbon cutting at 11 a.m., cars will be allowed through.
