ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

The Poplar Street Bridge was closed on all weekend as crews moved the bridge to make room for a fifth eastbound lane.

In the clip, crews are seen working around the clock to complete this historic slide.

The slide, which is part of on-going work to construct a fifth eastbound lane across the bridge between 6th Street and Illinois Route 3, moved at about 9 inches per hour. The entire project will cost about $50 million.
