Take Metro Transit to Avoid the I-64 Closure This WeekendReturn to Blog
Update: MoDOT is postponing the closure of I-64 due to heavy rain and storms forecasted for this weekend, but Metro Transit is still a great way to explore the region this weekend!
If your weekend plans include heading to downtown St. Louis for food, fun and visiting the attractions, then Metro Transit is a great option to avoid the Interstate 64 closure. All lanes of I-64 will be closed eastbound and westbound starting at 8 p.m. on Friday, July 9, between Grand Boulevard and Interstate 44. The interstate is scheduled to reopen by 5 a.m. Monday morning.
Metro Transit makes it easy. There are 19 free Park-Ride lots at MetroLink stations in St. Louis County in Missouri and St. Clair County in Illinois where you can park and catch the train to downtown St. Louis.
Hop on and off MetroLink or MetroBus all day by purchasing a Metro Day Pass for only $5 via Transit app or at Ticket Vending Machines located at all MetroLink stations and Metro Transit Centers.
Reminder: Per federal law, masks are required when riding Metro Transit.
