   Missouri Transportation officials say they will apply another temporary surface to Poplar Street Bridge.  

   Deanna Venker, MoDOT's area engineer for the city told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch Tuesday that the paving work is expected to take two weekends and will begin after Labor Day.

   Even with the lane restrictions that come along with paving projects, the announcement should be good news for drivers, who've suffered all summer with pavement that's so bad, the metal surface of the bridge deck is exposed in several spots.  Venker says the exposed metal is a driving hazard because it becomes slippery in rain and snow. 

   Venker says the bridge surface is in such bad condition because crews have had trouble getting surface materials to stick to the metal box structure.  Officials hope the new pavement will last two to four years.  

   After the Stan Musial Veterans Memorial Bridge opens, they expect to make more permanent repairs as part of a bridge widening project.
