ST. LOUIS – People heading into downtown this weekend should consider using I-64 or I-70, taking Metro or allowing themselves extra time as MoDOT will close eastbound I-44/northbound I-55 for pavement work over the weekend, starting Friday, March 9.

During the closure, crews will be repairing pavement and drainage on the bridge over 3rd Street between the I-44/I-55 split and under the Poplar Street Bridge/eastbound I-64.
