Bridge into St. Louis to close for months

Posted: Updated:

EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. – If you plan on driving to St. Louis over the next several months, you'll want to know about this road closure. The Illinois Department of Transportation will be closing the Martin Luther King Bridge August 20 for extensive repairs that will keep the bridge out of service until next year.

According to an IDOT spokesperson, ramps and roadways leading to the MLK Bridge need work. The bridge will be closed beginning the week of August 20 and will remain closed until the fall of 2019.

If you need to cross over to Missouri, you can instead use the I-70 Stan Musial Veterans Memorial Bridge, and plan for your trip to take longer due to the extra traffic.
