Three days after the closure of the westbound lanes of the I-70 Blanchette Bridge, officials with the Missouri Department of Transportation say traffic continues to move smoothly.
However, they are concerned that motorists are falling back into old habits.
Linda Wilson Horn with MoDOT says they’ve seen a steady increase in drivers traveling I-70.
This morning marked the first rush hour since all westbound lanes of the Blanchette Bridge were closed late yesterday afternoon for a year-long construction project.
