MODOT is working on the Blanchette Bridge this morning. Crews are repairing bridge girders and support beams underneath the bridge. This is the fourth time in the past ten months MODOT had to make repairs to the bridge. We are told MODOT will do a major rehab on the bridge in 2012.
All westbound lanes on I-70 near the Blanchette Bridge will reopen by three o'clock this afternoon. 78-thousand drivers use the Blanchette bridge each day. If you are looking for a detour route try the Page Avenue Extension or Route 370.
