ST. LOUIS, MO — MoDOT says the nine-foot slide of a section of the Poplar Street Bridge was a success. Workers finished the project about 9pm Sunday.

Engineers lifted the four eastbound lanes and slid them nine feet to the south in order to make room for a fifth lane.

You still might want to consider an alternate route for your commute Monday. MoDOT officials say there's only one eastbound lane open this morning.
