ST. LOUIS — St. Louis-area drivers who need to cross the Mississippi River could face some headaches this weekend.
The Eads Bridge will close for construction work at 8 p.m. Friday and remain closed until 3 a.m. Monday. Two eastbound lanes of the Poplar Street Bridge also will be closed.
The bridge closing will affect MetroLink light rail service. MetroLink passengers will take a bus between the Arch-Laclede's Landing station and the Fifth and Missouri station in East St. Louis, Ill.
The Missouri Department of Transportation will also close all lanes of eastbound Interstate 64 from Jefferson Avenue to Sixth Street in St. Louis from 8 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday.
