ST. LOUIS — A bridge that connects Missouri and Illinois over the Mississippi River at St. Louis will be inspected after the discovery of crumbling concrete.
The Missouri Department of Transportation noticed the problem during the weekend on a Poplar Street Bridge ramp that leads to Interstate 55 on the Missouri side of the river. Underneath it is the ramp to Interstate 55/70.
KSDK/Channel 5 reported that a stretch of the highway was closed for an hour Sunday, and traffic was temporarily detoured while crews knocked the debris loose.
There were no reports of any vehicles being hit by the concrete.
