Hampton Avenue Bridge over River Des Peres between I-44 and Manchester will be closed for repairs after the evening rush hour on Friday, September 10, 2010. It is scheduled to be reopened by morning rush hour on Monday, September 13, 2010.
The contractor for the project will be repairing the longitudinal joint along the center of the bridge roadway deck and will be replacing expansion joints on the bridge. The longitudinal joint will require the placement of new concrete which will require the bridge to be closed to traffic until the concrete can gain the required strength.
The signed detour will be west on Arsenal Street to McCausland Avenue, then north on McCausland to Manchester Avenue, then east on Manchester to Hampton and vice-versa. The ramps at I-44 will remain open.
