WB I-70 reopened at Blanchette Bridge

Posted: Updated:

ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) -- An afternoon burst of snow caused a traffic nightmare for commuters Wednesday afternoon as all interstates in the St. Louis area had significant traffic back-ups. 

On Interstate 70, an accident closed the westbound lanes at the Blanchette Bride around 4:30 p.m. but it has since reopened. As a result of that accident, traffic was backed up past I-170. MoDOT reported delays of up to 2 hours for drivers going to St. Charles County from downtown St. Louis. Interstate 64 also had delays of over an hour to St. Charles County as accident snarled traffic there, as well.
