Bridge deck work will close two lanes of a busy part of Interstate 70 just west of Independence for part of the weekend.

The Missouri Department of Transportation says the two right lanes of eastbound I-70, from Van Brunt Boulevard to Manchester Trafficway, will be closed from 8 p.m. Friday through 4 p.m. Saturday. Three ramps in that area also will be closed: from U.S. 40 onto eastbound I-70, from eastbound I-70 to U.S. 40, and eastbound I-70 to Manchester.

MoDOT is replacing the I-70 bridges over Manchester, the Blue River and the railroad tracks in that area.
