ST. LOUIS – Drivers who use I-44 to get into downtown should consider using I-64 or I-55 when traveling to the April 9 game against the Washington Capitals.
Crews will close the ramp from eastbound I-44 to northbound I-55 starting at 8 p.m. on April 8 and will reopen it by 5 a.m. on Monday, April 1.
During the closure, the ramps from eastbound I-44 to Lafayette and the ramp from Jefferson to eastbound I-44 will also be closed. The detour for the interstate ramp closure will be to take southbound Interstate 55 to Arsenal, turn around onto northbound I-55 and take it to eastbound I-44.
The detour for the Jefferson to eastbound I-44 ramp is to take Russell to Gravois and get on eastbound I-44 at Gravois.
On Monday, April 11, one lane on the ramp from eastbound I-44 to northbound I-55 will remain closed around the clock until mid-May. In addition, the ramps from eastbound I-44 to Lafayette and the ramp from Jefferson to eastbound I-44 will remain closed until mid-May.
The work on the ramps is part of regularly scheduled preventative maintenance. Crews will be removing the driving surface, making repairs to the concrete on the ramps and replacing joints. This ensures that the bridge and interchange remains in good condition for the future.
