(KMOV) -- Repair work to the Blanchette bridge will cause delays for drivers all week.
MODOT will close the two eastbound lanes on the Interstate 70 bridge everyday this week from 9am-3pm.
MODOT stresses the bridge is still safe for motorists, depsite the construction.
The bridge has a lifespan of about 100 years. In 2012, major construction is scheduled on the westbound lanes of the bridge.
Earlier this year, crews shut down part of the bridge to make repairs to expansion joints.
