Interstate 55 in St. Louis

Speed warning as Interstate 55 turns onto the Poplar Street Bridge in St. Louis

Northbound Interstate 55 traffic must make a sharp turn in St. Louis to get onto the Poplar Street Bridge over the Mississippi River. Naturally, this is a challenge for trucks. Also note the symbolic sign in the background and, beyond that, the Gateway Arch.
