St. Louis – City officials said traffic moved well throughout St. Louis over the weekend despite a changing list of street closings.
But St. Louis Streets Director Todd Waelterman is urging patience Tuesday night, when President Obama's visit will close Interstate 64 between the Poplar Street Bridge and 14th Street starting at 5 p.m.
Waelterman said that could cause backups on Interstates 55 and 44. Once downtown, Waelterman said drivers should look out for pedestrians.
St. Louis, MO – St. Louis aldermen will adjourn for the summer without taking action on a proposal to ban smoking in most public places.
Board rules mean even if the Health and Human Services committee had taken action Thursday, the entire Board of Aldermen would not have considered the legislation until late September. Opponents plan to use the period to get organized.
