The Missouri Department of Transportation and its contractor, Penhall Company, will close all lanes and ramps on westbound I-64 downtown between the I-44/I-55 ramp on the Poplar Street Bridge and 21st Street on the double deck structure starting at 8:30 p.m. tonight. 

Crews are continuing work to prepare the lanes for opening later this week.  Two westbound lanes will be open by 5 a.m. Thursday. 

Through this weekend, crews will continue to keep the Broadway, 10th Street and 14th Street ramps closed, as well as up to two lanes on westbound I-64.  Although the barrier has been removed, one lane will remain closed around the clock on westbound I-64 with a second lane closed between 10 a.m. and 5 a.m. the following morning.  All westbound lanes and ramps should be opened by noon Saturday, September 8, 2012. 

Crews still have two weekend closures projected for westbound I-64 as part of the project to remove and replace the driving surface on the double deck structure.  They are currently set for September 14-17 and September 21-24.
