ST LOUIS – One additional lane on westbound Interstate 70 at the Blanchette Bridge will be closed on Thursday for maintenance work.
The lane closure will occur from 9:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m. MODOT is advising motorists to use Route 370 or Route 364 as alternate Missouri River crossings. The additional lane reduction will leave only two lanes open for westbound I-70.
Both directions of I-70 are already reduced from five lanes in each direction down to three lanes in each direction and all traffic is using the eastbound bridge. The westbound bridge closed in early November and scheduled to be complete in fall 2013.
