All lanes on eastbound Interstate 64 from Jefferson to 6th Street in downtown St. Louis will close this weekend, weather permitting.
The closures will occur from 8 p.m. Friday, Dec. 16 until 8 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 18 for bridge work, according to the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT). Motorists are urged to use Jefferson to Interstate 44 as a detour to get downtown.
The eastbound ramps at Pine Street, Forest Park and Ewing will close at 7 p.m. Friday until 8 p.m. Sunday.
Access to 14th Street from eastbound I-64 will remain open for downtown events at the Scottrade Center and Peabody Opera House on Saturday from 1 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
On westbound I-64, the Broadway or the 10th Street entrance ramps will also close from 5 a.m. to 8 p.m. both Saturday and Sunday. Either ramp closure depends on if the left or right lane on westbound I-64 is closed. Both ramps will not be closed at the same time.
