(KMOV) – One lane on westbound I-70 will be closed through rush hour Thursday evening as crews make emergency repairs to a broken drain grate.
Missouri Department of Transportation officials say drivers are urged to instead use Rte. 370 or Rte. 364 to cross the Missouri River. That lane reduction leaves only two open for westbound I-70.
Both directions of I-70 are already reduced to three lanes in each direction on the eastbound side as crews complete a major renovation to the westbound bridge.
The westbound bridge is scheduled to be complete by the fall.
