Accident Blocks I-70 at Rocheport Bridge
UPDATE: MoDOT now reports both lanes open on the bridge, as of 8:40 am.
BOONE COUNTY - Emergency crews are working to clear a wrecked car from the I-70 bridge over the Missouri River west of Rocheport. Witnesses report a car with a trailer spun out and blocked both lanes on the bridge.
Westbound traffic is completely blocked at the bridge, causing a backup stretching back toward Columbia. Weather conditions have caused low visibility and slick spots on roads.
The Columbia Police Department tweeted to announce both west bound lanes were blocked, and that units were responding to several accidents. The tweet ensured the accidents in question did not involve injury.
