Five downtown I-64 ramps closed

ST. LOUIS – As part of a project to reconfigure traffic patterns to accommodate the new National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency and Major League Soccer stadium, five I-64 ramps downtown will close permanently starting Monday, Feb. 3:

I-64 Westbound

  • Entrance ramp from Pine Street and Market Street
  • Exit 39 at Market Street

I-64 Eastbound

  • Entrance ramp from South Ewing Ave.
  • Entrance ramp from Pine Street and Market Street
  • Exit 38B at North 20th Street and Chestnut Street

MoDOT will build several new ramps that will take up less space. Jefferson Avenue will gain exits and entrances for both east- and westbound drivers. The project will also connect pedestrian and bike paths to the new stadium area on Market just northwest of Union Station.

MoDOT and St. Louis’ Board of Public Service will collaborate and share costs for the ramp project, which should be finished in time for the soccer team’s planned debut in spring 2022.

This map provided by the City of St. Louis shows recommended detour routes for drivers during construction in the area that surrounds the interchange between Jefferson Avenue and Interstate 64.

  1. What’s the logic behind closing existing ramps before building the new ramps? Doesn’t seem to make sense and will cause many problems for area drivers.
