The more urgent question: Can you still travel east across the bridge (and into the loving, dollar-eating embrace of Sapphire or whatever her stage-name is)? Yes, sayeth MoDOT:
All lanes on westbound Interstate 64 from the Poplar Street Bridge to 21st Street will close starting at 10 a.m., Friday. All westbound lanes will reopen by 5 a.m., Monday.
One eastbound lane will be open during the weekend work.Why are they doing all this construction, when all you're trying to do is be less alone?
The bridge was opened to traffic in November 1967 and is over 43 years old. The double deck needs to be rehabilitated to ensure a longer lifespan. The expansion joints in between the bridge decks also need to be replaced because they are in poor condition due to age.Wait - are we talking about the strippers again?
