The Missouri Department of Transportation will be closing nearly all lanes of Interstate 64 leading on and off the Poplar Street Bridge Saturday.

Expect extra drive-time, says MoDOT engineer Deanna Venker, if you're driving over the Poplar Street Bridge this Saturday. Venker says all westbound and two eastbound lanes on I-64 will close between I-55 and Jefferson Ave.

"We are doing bridge deck repair, we will also be doing seismic retrofitting at the western edge of the bridge and we are replacing bearings on the eastern side of the bridge," Venker said.

The Missouri Department of Transportation says snow removal won’t be an issue this winter, despite the agency’s downsizing.

MoDOT’s downsizing includes laying off 1,200 workers, closing over 130 facilities, and selling off hundreds of pieces of equipment.  State Maintenance Engineer Beth Wright says, though, that the number of workers assigned to remove snow and ice will remain the same.
