ST. CHARLES, MO (KPLR)-- Get ready for some traffic delays and detours on the Interstate 70 Blanchette Bridge.

Starting Friday night at 8 o'clock, MoDOT crews will close one lane in each direction on the Blanchette Bridge.

The lanes will stay closed for 3 weeks to prepare for the bigger construction job coming in the first week of November.

In November MoDOT crews will begin building a new driving surface and a new barrier wall on the westbound Blanchette Bridge.  The work is expected to be completed in about a year.
