ST. CHARLES COUNTY, Mo. - Lanes on the Blanchette Bridge are still closed while Missouri Department of Transportation crews perform emergency repairs.

Both ramps from Fifth Street to eastbound Interstate 70 as well as three eastbound lanes of the Blanchette Bridge were shut down Friday afternoon. Shaunda White, a MoDOT spokesperson, said welds on the bridge broke loose and needed to be repaired before any further damage could occur.

All ramps and lanes are expected to reopen around 10 p.m.
