ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) - A major ramp closure involving the Poplar Street Bridge could effect your evening commute.  At 9:00a.m. Thursday morning, MoDot will close the ramp from eastbound I-44/ northbound I-55, onto Memorial Drive and Walnut Street.  This latest ramp closure is part of the larger project to tear down and rebuild the main exit from the Poplar Street Bridge into downtown.  The ramp will reopen at 6:00p.m. Thursday.  On Friday, crews will close the same ramp during this same time frame.

MoDot said the closure is needed.
