MoDOT permanently closes EB I-70 ramp to 10th Street ramp October 10

ST. LOUIS - The Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) and its

contractor Millstone Bangert Inc, will permanently close the exit ramp from

eastbound Interstate 70 to 10th Street in St. Louis City (Exit 249A) at 9

a.m. October 10, 2011.

The ramp will be removed permanently so crews can construct roadway

and ramps between I-70 and the new Mississippi River Bridge. The new ramps

to the bridge will cross directly over the current location of the 10th

Street exit ramps.

Drivers can use the Broadway exit (250A) to get into the city.

At the same time, several roadways on the west side of the interstate

will also close as part of construction.

They include:

  • N. 10th Street between N. 11th Street and Mullanphy Street.
  • Mullanphy Street east of N. 11th Street.
  • Howard Street east of N.11th Street.
  • N. 11th Street between Howard and Mullanphy streets.
  • 9th Street and 10th Street north of Cass Avenue will become two-way,

to ensure traffic can get to businesses on those roadways.

Note: A detour map for the ramp closure is included in the above link
