There's good news for I-70 drivers. The Blanchette Bridge is back to five lanes in each direction.
MoDOT reports that crews finished work well ahead of this morning's deadline, opening all lanes on both spans Saturday.
Transportation officials say drivers should expect occasional lane closures middays and overnight as crews finish work on the underside of the bridge structure.
The bulk of the work on the $64 million project has been completed two months ahead of schedule.
