St. Louis, MO (KSDK) - The Missouri Department of Transportation will close parts of I-64 in downtown St. Louis beginning Saturday evening.

According to Andrew Gates, a MoDOT spokesman, drivers can expect delays as crews continue to remove and replace driving surfaces, weather permitting.

Starting Saturday, October 13 at 7 p.m., eastbound lanes between Jefferson and the Poplar Street Bridge on the double deck structure will be closed.

One eastbound lane will reopen by 6 a.m. Sunday, but the 14th Street ramp will remain closed. A second eastbound lane will open by 2 p.m. Monday.

Drivers can take Jefferson Avenue to eastbound I-44, or use the MLK, Eads, McKinley, Chain of Rocks, or Jefferson Barracks bridges to avoid additional delays.

Pine Street and Forest Park Avenue ramps to eastbound I-64 remain closed until November.

The 14th Street ramp from eastbound I-64 will remain open between 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. daily.

Closures for 6th and 11th street ramps from eastbound I-64 are also scheduled, but both ramps will not be closed at the same time.

Road work will be adjusted around the Cardinals' postseason schedule. Eastbound work should not impact Rams home games or other downtown events. Temporary barriers on the double deck structure are scheduled to be removed by November 1.
