Part of I-64 remains closed while demolition of the Ewing Bridge continues


ST. LOUIS – MoDOT continues work on the demolition of the Ewing Bridge and I-64 remains closed near that area.

Both directions of I-64 are closed between Grand and I-44 through March 1 while work is done.

MoDOT said drivers should consider taking I-44 or I-70 in order to get to the city, while drivers trying to get to Illinois should consider taking I-270 or I-255.

The ramp from westbound I-64 to Market Street, Exit 38B, is closed. The Broadway, 10th Street and 14th Street ramps are all also closed.

Eastbound drivers can detour by using Market/Bernard, Jefferson, Cass and I-70. Westbound drivers can detour by using I-44, Jefferson and Market.

MoDOT said interstate lanes, entrance ramps and exit ramps, including the Market Street exit are set to reopen by 5:00 a.m. Monday, March 1. One eastbound lane between Compton and Ewing will remain closed until late July when Ewing reopens.

President Harry Truman said: “It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.” That spirit is alive and well at Fox 2. Our teamwork is on display each and every day.

Our news slogan is: “Coverage You Can Count On.” We quite frankly are too busy to worry about who gets the credit. Our main concern is serving the viewer.

We go where the stories take us. Whether it be Washington, D.C when a Belleville man opened fire during a congressional baseball game practice or to Puerto Rico where local Ameren crews restored power after more than 5 months in the dark.

Coverage You Can Count On means “Waking up your Day” with our top-rated morning show. From 4:00 am-10:00 am we are leading the way with breaking news. But our early morning crew also knows how to have some fun! Our strong commitment to the communities we serve is highlighted with our Friday neighborhood shows.

Our investigative unit consists of three reporters. Elliott Davis focuses on government waste, Chris Hayes is our investigative reporter, and Mike Colombo is our consumer reporter. They work in unison with the news department by sharing resources and ideas.

We continue to cover breaking news aggressively and relied on our seasoned journalists to make a difference with the stories we covered. The shooting of Arnold Police Officer Ryan O’Connor is just one example of that. Jasmine Huda was the only reporter who had exclusive access to the O’Connor family during his amazing rehabilitation in Colorado.

Last, but certainly not least, FOX 2 and KPLR 11 are committed to covering local politics. We host debates among candidates and have the most extensive presidential election coverage. Our commitment to politics isn’t just during an election year. We produce two political shows that air every weekend.
