ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) – Drivers heading eastbound on the Poplar Street Bridge into Illinois will need to pick their lane early to ensure they take the right exit starting Wednesday afternoon.

Just before the evening rush hour, crews will split traffic in the eastbound lanes of the bridge, with one lane going to the left and two lanes going to the right. The split lanes are part of continuing work to place a new driving surface across the bridge.

Early Wednesday morning, crews closed the second to the left lane of the Poplar Street Bridge. At 2:30 p.m., the left lane of the eastbound bridge, which has been closed since late May, will reopen and the second to left lane will close, causing the split.

The lanes are expected to be split until mid-September.
