(KMOV) -- The two far left lanes of westbound Interstate 70 at the Blanchette bridge have reopened.
 
 
According to MoDOT, crews started repairing the bridge after welding broke Friday afternoon on the steel joint.
 
Apparently the metal popped the tires of a few cars crossing the bridge on Friday.
 
The Blanchette Bridge is the busiest in the entire state and crews say it takes quite a beating.
 
MoDOT says the bridge is still safe.
