MoDOT will close the northbound Interstate 55 entrance ramp to the Poplar Street Bridge starting at 9 p.m. Monday for pavement repairs. Repairs are necessary tonight due to deterioration on the ramp.
Crews expect the repairs to be complete by 5 a.m., Tuesday morning, weather permitting. If the entrance ramp needs to be closed during Tuesday morning’s commute, MoDOT will keep motorists and the media informed with updates to this work.
MoDOT urges motorists to use alternate routes, such as I-255, or the Eads, McKinley or Martin Luther King bridges. Motorists can detour around the ramp closure by exiting at 10th Street/Madison. Make a left on St. Louis Avenue. Make another left on 11th Street to access eastbound I-70.
