This year, the Missouri Department of Transportation has several projects planned along the I-44 corridor in St. Louis County and St. Louis City. This is part of planned rehabilitation projects for aging bridges along the I-44 corridor.  There are a number of bridges scheduled for work in 2016, and work along the I-44 corridor will continue through 2020.  Here's what you can expect this year:

I-44 over the BNSF railroad:

Crews will be repairing pavement and renovating the bridge over the BNSF. The work will require crews to close one lane around the clock on both eastbound and westbound I-44 between Murdock Avenue and the city limits. Westbound traffic will shift and share the eastbound bridge with eastbound traffic through the construction.  The ramp from Shrewsbury to eastbound I-44 will be closed for safety during construction. The project will be completed in late 2018.

I-44/I-55 over 3rd Street (3rd Street Viaduct)

Crews will be continuing renovation work on the 3rd Street Viaduct. From March to mid-August, crews will have one of two lanes closed on the  ramp from the westbound PSB and will have three lanes open on southbound I-55/westbound I-44 from the PSB to the I-44/I-55 interchange. Between April and December, crews will have three lanes open northbound from I-55 to the PSB. In addition, the ramp from 8th/Marion to northbound I-55 will be closed.  Although not a part of this project, the ramp from NB I-55/eastbound I-44 to the eastbound PSB will be closed from August through December

Poplar Street Bridge widening

Work continues on the eastbound lanes of the Poplar Street Bridge though 2018.  This year, crews will close one lane around the clock on eastbound I-64 from March until August.  In August, crews will close the ramp from northbound I-55/eastbound I-44 to the eastbound PSB. In addition, the two right lanes on the eastbound Poplar Street Bridge will be closed.  One lane on the ramp and one right lane will reopen in December 2017.  

Ramp from northbound I-55 to westbound I-55

This summer, crews will place a high friction surface on the ramp from northbound I-55 to westbound I-44.  Drivers can expect overnight and weekend ramp closures with detours.  This was a two night project and has been completed.
