Update: US 60 overpass back open

Update

After a brief closure at US 60 and 5th Street in Owensboro, both roads are now open at this time.

The US 60 overpass that crosses 5th St. was closed for a time after early reports indicated a semi hauling an excavator of some type hit the overpass.

Bridge inspectors were dispatched to the site.

While there is some damage to beams on the overpass, the roadway is now open to traffic.

Due to damage to the outer beams on the overpass, traffic on 5th St. will be moved to the middle of the structure until further notice while inspectors and engineers continue to review the structure.

Original Story

A piece of large machinery is blocking Highway 60 in Owensboro near the off ramp of the Audubon Parkway.
