ST. LOUIS (KMOV) – The Missouri Department of Transportation is closing several major arteries in the downtown area this weekend.
All eastbound lanes and ramps on Interstate 64/Highway 40 heading into downtown St. Louis are closed between Jefferson and the Poplar Street Bridge. A detour will take you down Jefferson to Interstate 44 to get around.
On westbound Highway 40, only one lane will get through between the Poplar Street Bridge and 14th Street.
These closures will start Saturday morning and will end early on Monday.
Other traffic notes:
- Maintenance crews are working late at night on the shoulders of I-270 and I-70 to complete cleanup from the tornado.
- MoDOT has permanently closed the Delmar Bridge over I-170 because the bridge has deteriorated to a point too dangerous for cars to cross.
