St. Louis (KSDK) - The Poplar Street Bridge was backed Tuesday night up due to police activity.

Officers from St. Louis were pursuing three men wanted for a robbery, and stopped their vehicle going eastbound on the bridge around 9 p.m.

St. Louis Police say the pursuit involved 3 males wanted for robbery on the city's north side.

That pursuit came to an end at the bridge, as all three suspects were taken into custody.

Traffic heading from Missouri east into Illinois was impacted for a time because all lanes on the bridge were closed.

Westbound lanes were not impacted, though they did appear to be slower than normal due to construction.
