Are you going to Saint-Louis? Lane Closures Planned on the Poplar Street Bridge | State and regional


Former Director of the Centers for Disease Control, Dr Richard Besser, told Power & Politics that new science demonstrating that fully vaccinated people can transmit the delta variant has prompted the US CDC to change its mind on the rules masking.

The Illinois Department of Transportation has announced that the right two lanes of the Poplar Street Bridge on I-55/64, including the Illinois 3 southbound ramp in East St. Louis, will be closed at 7 a.m. 12:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Thursday, July 29.

Additionally, there will be short-term intermittent closures of an additional lane during this same period, provided the weather cooperates with the work crews.

The restrictions are required to perform work on the overhead traffic sign, according to IDOT. Kujo Inc., in cooperation with IDOT District 8 task forces, will make the necessary improvements. Full access will be restored as soon as possible.

Motorists can expect delays and should allow more time for travel in this area or choose alternative routes, advises IDOT.

Drivers are advised to pay particular attention to changes in conditions and signage in work areas, to obey posted speed limits, to refrain from using mobile devices, and to be alert to workers and the driver. equipment.
